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.
The Palos Verdes Democrats Has Lost a Dear Friend
Rascha Hall, a long time Palos Verdes Democrats member, passed away on March 7th after a lifelong battle with lung disease. It was her 83rd birthday. Rascha served as secretary, vice president, and president of the PV Democrats at various times. She was an avid supporter of Democratic ideals, campaign events and candidates. She actively recruited others into the club (including me).
Rascha was a math teacher at PV Peninsula High School for many years and continued to tutor math students after retirement. Rascha was also a board member of Palos Verdes charity group Help the Homeless Help Themselves from the 1980s to 2015, serving as treasurer for many years. She was an active member of Congregation Ner Tamid as well.
Rascha is survived by her husband and PV Democrats member David Hall, children Ronna Harris, Cheryl Hall, Darren Hall, and Laurie Hall; granddaughters Mara Harris, Paige Harris and Eileen Hall; and brothers Mordecai and Jacque Labovitz. A Shiva will be held at Congregation Ner Tamid, 5721 Crestridge Road, Rancho Palos Verdes on Sunday 3/13/23 at 7 p.m. All are welcome.

Volunteers Needed for CA Dem State Convention (CADEM)
The State Party Convention is back in person and in Los Angeles from May 26 thru 28!
CADEM is looking for dedicated volunteers to help make this event a success to elect.
All volunteers will receive an Observer pass to attend events typically reserved only for credentialed delegates, after you’ve completed your volunteer shifts!
Also, the party is looking to train thousands of activists to organize in their communities to talk to Democrats all over California. The goal is to train other Democrats on key organizing skills such as phone banking, volunteer management and recruitment, and more using the resources and tools provided by CADEM.
CADEM will be hosting an in-person training session for trainers accepted in the program at the Convention in Los Angeles.
