The DRC was established in 2006 as a center for engagement and involvement for local Democrats looking to make a difference. Here at the center we engage in charitable efforts, assist local campaigns, and support the state and national Democratic apparatus. It has enjoyed great success in strengthening the Democratic presence in the Northeast Tennessee area. The common sentiment in our area is that Democrats can do little in the “red, red” hills of East Tennessee. However nothing could be further from the truth. At the center you will find Democrats, young and old, working together towards bettering out local community and educating people about what a Democrat really is.
