St. Johns County Coalition Partners
In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, numerous grassroots groups sprang up in St. Johns County to systematically resist the new administration’s regressive policies and combat the growing forces of bigotry, hatred, and isolationism. At the same time, longstanding clubs and caucuses were re-energized to strengthen and further the ideals of the party and support strong candidates for office.
