Every two years the ACDP has a reorganization meeting which involves inducting new members to the party, electing new board officials and forming committees to power us through the next two years. Please arrive on time, as the doors are shut promptly at noon when our meeting will begin, and you will need time to fill out the membership form when you arrive.
Once the business portion of the meeting is over we are having a BBQ cook out and all are welcome to join us!

Even if you have never been a member before, you are welcome to join and become a part of the party, and each portion of the meeting will be briefly explained as we go along, so everyone is on the same page.

Thank you all so much for the record breaking turnout at the “Standing in Solidarity” Event! Over 500 people came. Let’s be sure this isn’t just a one-off event and keep this momentum up!

Thank you to everyone who came out for the announcement of Melody Shekari’s campaign for Congressional Representative for the Third District. It was chilly this morning so we’re glad everyone braved the cold to come join us! She said herself this morning that “I will invest in our future and will stand up for the Third District“. Thank you for running, as we certainly can do better here and am glad to see you step up to the plate to help make change happen!

Urgent update from the County Chair, Catherine Denenberg!

 The Tennessee State Legislator needs to approve Insure Tennessee!

To accomplish this we need YOU to help make calls to both Speaker Beth Harwell (615-741-0709) and Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey (615-741-4524). They need to be told to do whatever it takes to approve Insure Tennessee NOW, during this session!

In addition, you can call your state senator and representative. Everyone has one of each. To connect with them, dial 615-763-4773.

For a major state newspaper to place a Sunday editorial from the Tennessean Editorial Board on the front page and to demand that Insure Tennessee be approved is a game changer.  To make this happen, we must all pick up the phone and make the calls.

Tennesseans state wide are in dire need of Insure Tennessee to pass, not to be defeated again to gain cheap political points.
Thank you! 

Democrats Put People First!
