Advancing a Progressive Agenda

... to offer a better life to all Americans. And these days, to keep the Trump administration from doing the country harm.

The Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (aka PaliDems, or PPDC) is one of the largest, most active Democratic clubs in Southern California. Since our founding in the 1950s, we've been working to insure that the following Democratic values and goals stay or become fundamental American priorities:

Women’s access to abortion and contraception
Scientific research and development
Electing progressive Democrats to city, state, county, and federal offices
Environmental protection and climate
Improved and expanded Medicare-for-All, single-payer system

The list goes on -- click here to read more




With the wildly important 2018 midterms looming,

another primary focus this year is to

Flip 8 of 14 California Congressional districts BLUE!




PPDC heartily supports the upcoming March 24 gun-control rally in Pershing Square.


If you're interested in joining with a local group (Palisades/Malibu/Topanga/Brentwood/Santa Monica) to head down together by bus, click here for information and to sign up.
