Join the San Leandro Democratic Club

The mission of the San Leandro Democratic Club (SLDC) is to promote Democratic Party participation, support Democrats for elected office, work towards the platform and ideals of the Democratic Party, and increase the number of Democrats in San Leandro and surrounding cities through voter registration.

The SLDC meets every fourth Thursday of the month – except August and November – at 6:30 pm. Due to the pandemic we currently meet on Zoom; however, meetings normally take place in the Trustee room of the San Leandro Main Library. A typical meeting has a theme with featured speakers, followed by discussion of items important to the local community and club business. Apart from monthly meetings, the SLDC hosts debates for city office, endorses candidates for local office, volunteers in the community, organizes actions for democratic goals, and drafts and endorses resolutions for the state Democratic Party. The public is cordially invited to attend a meeting before formally joining the club!

Weekend of Action, August 28-29, 2021

Opportunities abound this weekend to participate in democracy and support democratic candidates. We are featuring support for the crucial NO on the governor recall campaign with numerous actions found at CADEM. What is more, the AD18 special election ends August 31, so supporters of Mia Bonta and Janani Ramachandran still have plenty of opportunities to get out the vote and increase turnout.

Democracy requires participation!

Club Will Be In Recess for August

Enjoy summer vacation and come back in September with a renewed vigor for democracy and civic engagement!
