Grandparents for Democracy is an organization of grandparents, great aunt and uncles, and fellow baby boomers who are concerned about the future of our democracy. Our mission is to preserve our democratic institutions and values and to defend our environment and the safety of future generations.
We are building a nationwide coalition of local organizations to recruit volunteers to help us support candidates whose policies are consistent with our goals. Efforts in 2020 will be focused on voter registration, defending the Democrats’ 2018 House gains, flipping the Senate and taking back the White House. We have teamed with Grassroots Democrats Headquarters who will be providing the facility for us to do voter registration, letter and postcard writing, phone banking and canvassing.
Our first 2 meetings will be on Thursday, January 9th and January 23rd from 3:30pm-8:30pm to write postcards for Christy Smith (CA 25) and make phone calls into Arizona to elect Mark Kelly. Please bring a laptop and cell phone to phone bank if you can!
Parking Information: The Broxton multi-story lot (directly behind the HQ) is located at 1036 Broxton Ave.; it is free for the first 2 hours if you go in before 5pm.
