Are you interested in joining a Democratic Party political club that is interested in Roosevelt Island issues? If your answer is yes, then consider becoming a member of the recently formed FDR Four Freedoms Democratic Club

According to the Club's web site:
Membership in the Four Freedoms Democratic Club is open to all those to wish to support an active, progressive Democratic organization in the 76th Assembly District of New York State.

On February 6th, 2014 at the Founding Meeting of the club, regular dues were set at $10 for 2014.

Voting privileges are extended to all dues paying members who do not vote (or hold a position) in any other district-based Democratic Club and who have previously attended one regular meeting of the club.

Anyone interested in joining who is unable to pay dues for financial or legal reasons (e.g. being under 18) are encouraged to simply attend an event and speak to one of the organizers.
