Upcoming Opportunities to Volunteer

The Johnson County Democratic Party participates in many events throughout the year. Most of the events listed below are hosted by other organizations, but we’ll be at least attending each. Note that there are many opportunities to volunteer and get involved, especially in terms of registering voters. If you have questions about one of these events, please email Leah Jesse.

As part of our community outreach, the JC Dems sponsor the free lunch program once a month in even numbered months. If you’d like more information about contributing time or money to the program, please inquire with robin.roseman@gmail.com. The next free lunch will take place August 4; please scroll down for more info.

If you want to offer your services generally for the future, please feel free to fill out our volunteer form.


Friday, October 6, 2017 – University of Iowa Homecoming Parade
JC Dems Volunteer Sign-Up – Facebook Event

Reaching out to College students is an important part of recruiting new Democrats. Unfortunately, the University of Iowa’s homecoming parade tends to come together at the last minute. However, we do know that the 2017 parade will take place Friday on October 6. We’d love it if you’d join us there! Please do know, however, that we might later learn that there is a limit on the number of participants. If so, the participation of elected Democrats may be prioritized. We’ll keep in touch with you as we learn more about the parade.

Friday, October 6, 2017 – Free Lunch Program
1105 Gilbert Court, 9:30-11:30 & 11:30-2:00ish

The first Friday of every even-numbered month (February, April, June, August, October, December) the Johnson County Democrats and OFA cook and serve the free lunch program. We usually serve around 120 people.  

The first shift (9:30-11:30) is prep. We make the food, clean the dining room, take down the chairs, prepare the drinks–anything that needs to be done before the doors open. The second shift (11:30-1:30ish) is when we serve and clean-up. If you are interested in helping during one of the shifts please let Robin Roseman (robin.roseman@gmail.com) know. It is an enjoyable event.
