A lot of people are, justifiably, frustrated with the Democratic Party after this election season. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that we should abandon the Democratic party – I do believe that at some point, a multi-party system is inevitable and desirable, but ideally we’ll allow the GOP to succumb to warring factions before we do – it has the existing structure and influence as a political force, and that goes a long way. But people who care about reforming the Democratic Party ought to consider getting involved with the party directly and shaping it that way.
The easiest way to get involved is to simply start attending meetings for the Democrats of your legislative district, but you can also:
- Become a PCO (this link is WA State specific, but the general position itself is something that all precincts have)
- Join leadership in your local Democratic Party branch
- Join leadership in your county Democratic Party branch
- Join leadership in your State Democratic Party branch
- Get involved or join leadership in the DNC
Find your local branch of the Democratic Party here (find your state and then use whatever tools they offer to find local branches) to learn more about how you specifically can get involved.
