We are the Glen Ridge, New Jersey chapter of the Democratic National Committee. Our goal is to promote the progressive values of the Democratic Party, raise money for Democratic candidates, get out the vote and raise awareness about the issues that Democrats care about. We seek members interested in preserving and improving democratic institutions and governance and those willing to take an active role in shaping policy, holding office, keeping holders accountable, and working to elect the best-qualified candidates at all levels of government to advance those policies that we believe are in the best interest of our community.




  • Held phone banks in rented halls during last year’s election.
