The Democratic Party of Evanston creates political change.
We are independent activists who engage and mobilize the public and organize to elect progressive Democrats.
We empower people to make a difference.
Vibrant discussion of current issues keeps our democracy strong and healthy. As events unfold across our national stage or in the heart of our community, the Democratic Party of Evanston encourages the expression of many perspectives on our website, but always within the tenor of civility. So, in welcoming you to the our website, we hope everyone will remain mindful of President George Washington's caution, "Every action done in company ought to be with some sign of respect to those that are present."
