Bayou Blue was formed in the wake of the 2016 presidential election. A group of neighbors got together and looked for a way to channel our shock and disappointment into positive action.
We discovered that our geographic area did not have an active, functional Democratic club to help organize and energize voters and Precinct Chairs alike. And that had to change.
Now several years in, we hold monthly club meetings with elected officials, candidates and local experts on issues we care about. They speak to our members and guests to both educate and inspire us as we aspire to a more just and equitable society.
More importantly, we are finding and empowering Precinct Chairs to help drive our voter registration efforts and increase the Democratic share of the vote in every election.
In the past two national election cycles we have helped register and inform thousands of voters, organized voter outreach and get-out-the-vote efforts in support of local, state and national Democratic candidates, and created an active community of committed, focused, neighbors working together for positive change.
We currently represent precincts in Midtown, Montrose, Washington Ave Corridor, River Oaks, Upper Kirby and Memorial Park, but all of our meetings are open to the general public.
