District Meetings

District meetings are the best place to join the party, get your feet wet, find camaraderie, and get involved with Knox County Democrats.  We have meetings in each district in the county, and everyone is always welcome to attend any district meeting. 

While the Board of Governors Meetings and the County Assembly Meetings are generally focused on business aspects of the Knox County Democratic Party, the individual district meetings are the best place to join in with fellow Democrats in our community.
