Join us as we welcome our favorite Congress-person, John Yarmuth, for his annual visit to Metro Dems! This is always one of our largest and most-anticipated meetings, as the Congressman gives his honest, to-the-point assessment of the fall election, the situation in Washington, and general observations about what’s going on in politics in Kentucky and around the nation. Join us for this special evening!

This Wednesday, June 8th, we will be showing the locally-produced documentary “Ninth Street Divide.” Ninth Street is widely regarded as the physical manifestation of the barrier between the East and West ends of Louisville, where urban renewal in the 1960’s led to the rise of expressways and the demolition of African American-owned businesses. This documentary, from the Ky Place series (trailer), features Dana Duncan, Haven Harrington III, Joe Dunman, and Attica Scott discussing ways to reconnect our divided communities.
After the film, a panel of local leaders will lead us in a discussion of the Ninth Street divide, and how we can work together to build new bridges across it. The panel will consist of David James, Haven Harrington, and Camille Barbee Olmstead.
This is an important film, and an even more important discussion. Please join us Wednesday to learn, talk, and connect!

We finally have our web site (sorta) back up!
Just about the time we started hosting ten debates for local Democratic races, our web site got seriously hacked. Rather than fight with it while trying to run all those debates, we decided to rebuild it completely … AND to move to a new hosting company.
We will be adding pieces and features into the site over time, and sometime over the summer we will have a Grand Reopening. In the meantime, we’re glad that you can see us, and not a “site not found” page!
