Who We Are

The Palos Verdes Peninsula Democratic Club was founded in 1952.   Although the club name was changed slightly (we are now the Palos Verdes Democrats), all along we have been active in local, state and national politics.

Our monthly meetings often feature guest speakers who address current political or social issues. Special events include opportunities to meet our elected local, state, or national representatives, as well as events where candidates for office can be seen and heard.

Our Next Club Meeting

Our next club meeting will be:

PV Democrats October Meeting

October 16 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

The theme for this month’s meeting is “An Analysis of the November Ballot Propositions” by the League of Women Voters of Palos Verdes Peninsula. Click here for more info.
