During the summer, the EDC will have meetings only on ZOOM as too many people are out of town. However, we usually meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month from 5:30 to 6:30. All members and friends are welcome. Democracy One Vote at a Time! We gather people across both Charlotte and Sarasota counties that make up our town of Englewood, to support environmental stewardship, accessible healthcare for all citizens, and support the platform of the Democratic Party.
