There will be no monthly meeting this month!
Instead come to the county convention at
Bellingham High School this Saturday, April 12th.

On Saturday, April 12th, thousands of Democrats will gather around the state to discuss and update their county platforms, which are statements of beliefs, goals, and hopes.  In Whatcom County, the convention will take place at Bellingham High School, 2020 Cornwall Ave, in the Commons. All Democrats are welcome.  This is an opportunity to debate, vote on resolutions and proposed planks to the platform and elect delegates to the Washington State Convention, which will be held June 21st in Spokane.  Whatcom County will send 13 delegates to the State Convention.

A preview of the proposed new Whatcom County Democratic Platform is available online.

Doors will open at 10:00 am.  A freshly cooked tamale-plate lunch will be available for purchase by  Hita Quiuci, a Whatcom County farm worker women led catering cooperative providing delicious Mexican Cuisine cooked with local organic produce and organic, non-gmo corn.

Democrats attending the convention are encouraged to bring a jar of peanut butter to be donated to local Whatcom County Food Banks in conjunction with the National Association of Letter Carriers Annual Food Drive.  This special food drive is a response to a challenge the Northwest Washington Central Labor Council received from their Pierce County chapter. In 2013, they collected over four tons of peanut butter for food banks.
