NJDSC Announces 2022 Democratic State Convention October 6-9
In-person and virtual events scheduled all weekend throughout New Jersey
TRENTON, NJ – The New Jersey Democratic State Committee will hold its 2022 Convention starting Thursday, October 6th and continuing until Sunday, October 9th. This year’s theme is Road Trip: Where We’ve Been and Where We’re Going, and the Convention will focus on connecting Democratic voters in multiple communities across the state while celebrating New Jersey’s unique history and charting a course to a more progressive future.
The four day convention features in-person and virtual meet-and-greets with Democratic leadership, training sessions on Campaigning 101, Political Communications, and Field Strategy, and the opportunity to join other Democrats at brunch, lunch, or breakfast celebrations across the state. New Jersey Democratic Leaders such as Governor Phil Murphy, Chairman LeRoy Jones, State Senate Majority Leader Teresa Ruiz, and Congressman Bill Pascrell will be in attendance at events throughout the weekend, and additional speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
“With the midterm election rapidly approaching there couldn’t be a better time for Democrats in New Jersey to gather together and reaffirm our commitment to fighting for our rights and celebrating the diversity of our party and our state,” said NJDSC Chairman Jones. “Here in New Jersey, Democrats have been working together to make our state a safer, affordable, and more equitable place to live, work, and raise a family. We are up against an extreme Republican Party that is bent on taking away our rights, from their assault on women’s reproductive rights to their attacks on voting rights and on the sanctity of our democracy itself. We look forward to hearing from fellow New Jersey Democrats about how we can come together and continue building momentum, driving progress and standing firmly against the radical Republican extremists who are threatening our human rights and freedoms.”
This year’s NJDSC Convention will also be the first time in-person convention events have been held since 2019. Mindful of reducing the spread of COVID-19, the convention is being reimagined to give Democrats an opportunity to meet both in person, and virtually, in different locations throughout the state. Event sizes will be limited.
Passes for the convention are $22 and include access to every virtual and in-person event that entire weekend. After purchase, attendees MUST RSVP for EVERY event you wish to attend on their respective Mobilize page due to limited capacity for COVID safety. Events will reach capacity so attendees are asked to purchase their tickets early! Tickets are not available at the door.
