The Downers Grove Community Advocates (DGCA) exists to reach out to the community and to work in a positive effort to preserve the best of our community and to move forward to make it even better working primarily through the election process. The Downers Grove Community Advocates invites all of those interested to join with them in this effort.

We are a diverse group with many years of experience in community service in government, parks, the library, the schools and other civic groups and we are excited about the opportunity to bring that experience together to find solutions to the issues we face now and in the future. This site is intended to serve as a news source and a guide. Feel free to download, print, e-mail or further distribute this information. It is our hope that you will find both information and motivation within these pages.

Downers Grove is a wonderful community with a rich history and an exciting future. Village Government, Park District and Schools ... they belong to all of us and the DGCA wants to work with you for a positive future.
