There are no geographical restrictions to membership in Greater Birmingham Democrats. All good Democrats and Progressives everywhere welcome! Dues are $30 per year per individual. Please consider inviting your spouse or partner to join as well. You may join as a couple ($60.00) (sharing one email address).
Your dues and donations sustain our work and messaging by helping cover monthly fees for our website and email platform, venue fees for meetings, seminars, and panel discussions, event fees so we can be ‘on site’ for targeted voter registration efforts, monthly rent for the storage facility for our tents, tables, chairs and signs used for voter registration and special events, periodic expenses for printing and other materials, and the list goes on. We give no money to candidates or the Democratic Party, at any level. 100% of your contributions are spent on our grassroots efforts to make Alabama a better, more just place to live, for all her citizens.
If you prefer you may send your name, street address, email address and check to:
Greater Birmingham Democrats | P.O. Box 430114 | Vestavia Hills, AL 35243
