Illinois Democratic Women of Kankakee County

The purpose of the Illinois Democratic Women of Kankakee County is to encourage women to participate in the political process and work towards equitable representation of Democratic women in all levels of government.
Precinct Committee Persons Heather Bryan and Charlene Eads are ready to roll up their sleeves to help paint Kankakee County BLUE in 2020. We hope you can join them as they build momentum in our county. They are submitting an application to become a chartered member of the Illinois Democratic Women organization.
