Ten Things To Know … November 18!
After a very fun and good experience all together at the Carroll County DEMs annual Cleveland Dinner, we are getting back to business. And what does that entail?? Who are we??
We DEMs are about learning. DEMs are about creating conditions for goodness so that every single one of our neighbors can live a life that is whole and healthy. DEMs are about fairness and about fixing problems. DEMs careabout the marginalized neighbor.
Carroll County DEMs are pointing to some important areas of focus in the weeks to come. Regardless of where the events are in the county, regardless of which group is hosting — anyone in Carroll County who want to learn in invited to the events. Spread the word. Make the connections that your friends need you to make so that they can get involved where they are!
