Greeting from President

Obama in 2012 Date: 2014-12-12 Tuesday

Welcome to the Democratic Club South of the Broad web page. We are a liberal-minded group that gather (socially) to foster ideas for the better good of all. We meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at noon and in the evening respectively. Please join us when you are able and check this website for updates for programs and speakers.

During 2015 we have much to do to prepare for the 2016 election. Democrats need to help our legislatures to pass comprehensive immigration reform, raise the minimum wage, and keep the affordable care act in place. We can assist through letter-writing campaigns to our congressional representatives and newspapers as well as through other informational and educational activities.

We will continue with efforts to register voters, invite informed speakers for our luncheons and evening meetings, and participate in other outreach programs in our community.

We hope to establish some standing committees to work on specific issues and we would love to hear your suggestions and hope that you will volunteer to participate as well.

Thank you for your continued support. It is the 15.00 memberships that fund our Club and activities. Please consider joining today.
