OUR MISSION & HISTORY
The West Hollywood Beverly Hills Democratic Club is a political organization committed to promoting Democratic values and candidates in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Our mission is to engage, educate and empower voters to participate in the democratic process and to advocate for policies that promote social, economic and environmental justice. We were founded in 1985 as the West Hollywood Democratic Club and in 2005, activists in Beverly Hills formed Beverly Hills Democrats. The two clubs joined forces in 2009 and are now officially chartered by the LA County Democratic Party and the California Democratic Party. Our history is rooted in the fight for equality, justice and progress.
