SATURDAY, JANUARY 20: Women's March in Portsmouth

It’s been one year since the Women’s March! Due to the incredible number of people planning to attend this year’s event (they are expecting over 6000!), this year will be a gathering rather than a march. There will be speakers at 1:00 PM followed by the magnificent Leftist Marching Band!

This is an INCLUSIVE event, and EVERYONE who supports women’s rights and human rights FOR ALL. Invite your friends, family and co-workers. Spread the word!

Location: We will gather at the North Church in Market Square, Portsmouth
Date: Saturday, January 20, 2018
Time: 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

The SCDC is holding a special election for a delegate at-large to the Strafford County Democratic Committee Executive Committee. This is a great opportunity to get involved with a terrific bunch of people and to help transform the Democratic Party into the Party of Economic, Social and Environmental Justice.

The election will immediately be followed by the County Summit.
This valuable training will be put on by the NHDP, and will include candidate and volunteer recruitment, proper use of social media, and other important information to prepare for the 2018 campaign.
