County Committees set the rules for political parties, elect leadership, determine the local party’s budget, and choose which candidates to run in a special election - among other powers.
We all think of Brooklyn as overwhelmingly Democratic, yet decisions about the borough’s Democratic priorities and candidates are made by a few party insiders. It’s time to fix this by making sure everyone – especially broads – can access County Committee and transform the Democratic Party.
Come learn how you can be a part of making the Brooklyn Democratic Party more engaged, inclusive, and accountable! #RepYourBlock will train you on how to run for County Committee and support you every step of the way.
Not from Brooklyn? No problem! Each borough has its own County Committee and this training will give you the information you need to decide if you should run, no matter where you live.
#RepYourBlock is a community-led campaign of New Kings Democrats to help everyday Brooklynites reform local government by winning a seat on the 5,000-member Kings County Democratic Committee (a.k.a. the Brooklyn Democratic Party).
NKD was started when a group of Obama alum wanted to get involved in their local government and were turned away by the Brooklyn Democratic Party because they weren't "sent" by someone. They've been fighting (and winning!) against the establishment ever since. NKD is building a progressive Brooklyn alliance.
