Who we are

Your community of Democrats on LA’s Westside

The West Los Angeles Democratic Club is your community of Democrats for the large westside region of blue, blue Los Angeles. We are a grassroots force behind political campaigns and initiatives. Our members include everyone from local citizens to members of Congress and local government.

In addition, we hold monthly General Meetings, usually at St. Bede’s Episcopal Church in Mar Vista, for all members and guests. At these meetings, we wish to educate and entertain. We hold debates among candidates, discussions with popular authors, and stimulating discussions devoted to topical issues. Any ideas? Contact us.
