Join us for the 7th annual
We're excited to announce that on Saturday, August 13th, the Forever the Free State Gala is returning to the Overland Park Convention center again this year. The last two year’s events allowed us to meet virtually but it’s going to be great to see everyone in person again.
Representative Davids and her special guest, U.S. Congressman, James Clyburn will be there to share insights and inspiration. We hope you can join us and help make our 2022 Gala another great success.
The annual Gala is our primary fundraiser and we look forward to your continued support. Your generous donations keep our local office open year-round, supports our candidate’s campaigns, and funds our get-out -the-vote efforts. Because of you we’ve made great strides but we have more battles ahead. Let’s join together on August 13th, to continue building the Democratic Party in Johnson County!
Our Keynote Speaker is U.S Representative James Clyburn.
The number of registered Democrats has increased by 29% since November of 2016.
We've more than DOUBLED our State legislative delegation.
We elected U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids to Congress!
We elected Gov. Laura Kelly, whose margin of victory was achieved in Johnson County!
Make a difference now!
The gala is a great reason to get that one outfit out of the back of the closet and get fancy for an evening. Full length gown, tux, cocktail dress or just tie, whatever you do, feel confident and have fun.
