The Canton Dems need help to get Democrats elected up and down the ballot. We will be distributing 15,000 door hangers to voters' homes at the end of September (timed with the arrival of absentee ballots) and we need your help to do it. It's a very easy way to get involved.
Come join us to meet some amazing candidates, pick up a yard sign or two, explore the various volunteer opportunities with the club -- or just to enjoy a nice, fall afternoon with like-minded friends!
Join event with Plymouth Democratic Club. Please see our Facebook Event here for the sign up and more info:
Join Zoom Meeting:
Our featured speaker will be Dr. Peter Kim on “Detroit 1967: Civil Unrest and Black Lives Matter”
Dr. Kim, who teaches an Honors seminar on Detroit history and culture at Henry Ford College-Dearborn, will discuss local factors that contributed to the 1967 civil unrest in Detroit. The talk is intended to shed light on recent civil unrest and protests against racial injustice.
Dr. Peter Kim received his doctorate in English at Wayne State University with cognates in critical theory and cultural studies.
We also will be inviting our primary winners to say a couple words and let us know how we can help them win in November.
The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), social distancing and having to quarantine ourselves for an undetermined amount of time are taking their toll on all of us. We wanted to make sure to reach out to our valued members and check-in on your well-being. Please feel free to contact us if you are in need of any assistance. We are happy to check-in, via phone or video, and see if we can connect you to the right resource for help.
We are doing our best to adjust to this unprecedented situation. At this point, we have postponed our brunch, canceled our spring gala and we are looking into ways to convert our April 15th meeting to a teleconference. We will keep you posted with any updates.
Keeping our local Democratic community safe and strong is of the utmost importance to us. I'm also listing some possible resources and volunteer opportunities.
Please take care of yourselves and we will see you soon.
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the
ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” - Barack Obama
The Canton Democratic Club was formed in 2013 to elect democrats, advocate for progressive values, and build progressive leadership. We believe that democracy thrives when informed citizens actively participate in the political process through advocacy, action and discussion. Unfortunately, we now see how fragile our democracy can be. Everyday, it seems as if we are witnessing an assault on the values that we hold dear. Ill-conceived tweets from the White House seek to divide us and threaten our faith in our democratic institutions. There is a systematic dismantling of our healthcare, voting rights, civil rights and economic security.
Now is the time for action! We must work for change and it begins within our own community. It is a day to day, issue by issue battle which requires us to be united as a party as never before with battles to come including healthcare, taxes, climate and the next Presidential Election in 2020.
We are your neighbors, your friends, your school teachers, your union members, and your elected officials. We have close to 200 members. Every day we are building a larger, more diverse and inclusive membership. The Democratic Party in Canton is stronger than ever. Join Today!
Membership meetings occur the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7pm-8:30 pm, followed by a social hour at a Canton establishment. Our meetings provide an opportunity to learn from a variety of speakers invited to discuss hot topics in all levels of government, plus updates from our Elected Representatives.
The Club provides us with an unparalleled chance to meet candidates and ask questions about their platforms. In fact, leading up to the 2020 primary elections, most Michigan candidates running for local, state and federal contests spoke at least once at our meetings or events.
The Social Event Hour occurs immediately following our monthly meetings from 8:45-10pm. We believe that our community has many great things to offer and we want you to come and experience them with us. Each month the Canton Democratic Club chooses a different Canton business to go to after our monthly meeting. This is an opportunity for club members, guests, volunteers, candidates and elected officials to gather in a less formal setting to get to know each other on a more personal level while trying the many different restaurants and gathering places throughout Canton Township. We advertise the locations of our events each month on our social media pages. Please join us at one of our monthly Social Event Hours. We look forward to seeing you at the next gathering!
Past Social Event Hours were held at:
Tony Sacco's Pizza
Shakers Bar & Grill
La Shisho Palace
Buffalo Wild Wings
Basement Burger Bar
