VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB
Sunday, February 28, 2021
Stay connected to your Dem Club buddies by joining our virtual book club. Each month we will select a book to discuss that is sure to generate a lively discussion.
For our first meeting, we’ve chosen, The Tears We Cannot Stop, by Michael Eric Dyson. "Short, emotional, literary, powerful—Tears We Cannot Stop is the book that all Americans who care about the current and long-burning crisis in race relations will want to read.”
Our first meet will be in the form of a virtual Happy Hour, at 4 pm on Sunday, February 28th, to discuss the reading. Further instructions and Zoom access information will follow.
Please click the button below to register. We are suggesting a $10 donation to attend the meeting.
Registration is closed for this event.

DINING WITH DEMS
WE NEED HOSTS!
We need to start fundraising to ger ready for the next election! Dining With Dems is a lot of fun and a very important piece of our fundraising. You can help by volunteering to host a Dining With Dems event at your home. If you are interested, please use our Contact Form and Sally Nicastre will contact you.
We would really love to host some of these events in Bluffton. If you are one of our Bluffton supporters, we hope you will consider volunteering.
The Beaufort County Politics page includes maps of all relevant electoral districts in Beaufort County as well as a list of all incumbents in most elected positions in the County.
Several months before each election, the League of Women Voters website, VOTE411.COM, assembles excellent information about all candidates in national and local elections. You can compare the candidates' positions on a variety of issues and build a personalized sample ballot.
LOWCOUNTRY LIBERALS SUMMIT
The Democratic Club SOB is a member of the Lowcountry Liberals Summit, a coalition of fourteen local liberal organizations. It is a way for liberal-leaning organizations to meet, get to know one another personally, exchange ideas and seek ways to be involved in mutual areas of interest, activities and action. This summit group has significantly enhanced communication, information sharing and cooperative efforts for action, protests, elections, issues awareness and other outcomes.
One of the many benefits is a combined calendar of events of all liberal events in the area. To see this calendar, go to lowcountryliberals.com
The Liberal Summit is allied with many neighborhood groups. Click here to see a contact list for the neighborhood groups.
