Ward 6 Democrats of Washington, DC
Welcome to the Ward 6 Democrats website. Our mission is to:
Foster and encourage political activity among Ward 6 residents;
Work to constructively improve the quality of life of the District of Columbia residents and improve the communities in which they live;
Contribute to the growth and influence of the Democratic Party, to develop leadership, to increase Party responsibility.
We're always looking for volunteers, and the best way to keep up with our activities is to subscribe to our newsletter. You can do either - or both - via the Join Us button above.
The Ward 6 Democrats are kicking off Women of Ward 6, a non-partisan monthly recognition of Ward 6’s women. This effort, in partnership with the National Woman’s Party and the Hill Rag, will culminate in the 100th anniversary (in 2020) of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
Residents of Ward 6 are invited to nominate Ward 6 women, current or historical, to recognize their important role in our lives. Our categories include, but aren’t limited to: arts, writing, medicine, labor, media, law, retail, food service, professional services, government, community service, military religion, education, athletics, women under age 21, lobbying, non-profit, and science. Each woman must have worked or lived in Ward 6.
Ward 6 Democrats Holiday Happy Hour - Tuesday, Dec. 11
Join Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen, your Ward 6 Democrats officers, and a host of other special guests Tuesday, Dec. 11, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the upstairs room at Mr. Henry’s (601 Pennsylvania Avenue SE) to celebrate the holidays and YOU, our dedicated volunteers.
Light fare will be provided. It will be a cash bar (with happy hour specials), but you’ll have the opportunity earn a free drink. Ask our volunteers how when you check in.
The Ward 6 Democrats plan to organize volunteers to support Get Out The Vote (GOTV) efforts in key congressional races for the Tuesday, November 6 midterm elections.We are focused on congressional races that meet these criteria:
- Statehood/DC Affairs: We will support Democratic candidates who have confirmed they support DC Statehood. We will work to defeat Republican candidates who support congressional interference in DC affairs. #HandsOffDC
- Proximity: We will work in districts geographically close to DC.
- Impact: We will work in districts that stand a good chance of being one of the 23 seats we need to flip the House this November. We want our contribution to impact the composition of the House of Representatives.
The Ward 6 Democrats are proud to announce Women of Ward 6, a non-partisan recognition of Ward 6’s women who make a difference. This effort will culminate in the 100th anniversary (in 2020) of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
