Our Mission:

The Escondido Democratic Club provides opportunities for active political participation for members of the California Democratic Party in the Escondido area. We unite in order to promote democratic principles, issues, and candidates thereby contributing to the democratic process in America.

Our Values:

Each of us is equal and deserves protection under the law and the freedom to live life striving to obtain our full human potential.  Diversity is a strength and a cause for celebration — not a reason to be divided. 

Our Vision:

America will progress to become even better than its glorious past. The future belongs to those that can see it and are willing to work for it. The Democratic Party in Escondido will become a viable force for change. Every registered Democrat will be contacted for each election. We will recruit, endorse and support candidates for city, county, state and federal offices.

Our Objectives:

To educate our members.
To support Democratic candidates.
To advocate on behalf of important issues.
To encourage participation in self-government.
And to have fun doing it!
