Looking for an activist club? Since 2004 we have walked hundreds if not thousands of precincts for our endorsed candidates, raised in 6 figures, phoned tens of thousands, registered thousands to vote, held informational forums, lobbied in Sacramento for fair elections and for healthcare, gotten into the Democratic party structure. Among Santa Clara County Democratic clubs we're known as the club that walks the walk; our endorsement is sought after. See our full list of our accomplishments for 2014 & previous years.
