Northside DFA


A DFA Group since 2005 - Changing America one election at a time

Founded in 2005.

About this group

Please visit Northside DFA at our website Northside DFA (Democracy for America) is a grassroots political organization dedicated to electing socially progressive, fiscally responsible, ethically committed Democrats to all levels of government. During each election cycle we choose a number of candidates to Endorse or Adopt and volunteer for their campaigns. Northside DFA believes that while fundraising is important, the most powerful way to educate voters is a friendly face at their door or a heartfelt phone-call. Our Voting Members make all decisions regarding our group. To become a Voting Member you must attend 3 of our Monthly Meetings and do 3 vounteer activities for our Endorsed/Adopted candidates in a 12-month period. Membership is open to everyone. We meet monthly, usually on the second Tuesday of the month at: Lincoln Restaurant 4008 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago Counts for Voting Membership For much more information please visit Northside DFA at our website
