Our 2021 Democratic Club membership drive is here! This month marks a new chapter in our nation’s history as we recover from the most corrupt president in modern times. The Biden-Harris Inauguration is a time for celebration and renewed hope in America’s future. Join your neighbors this month:

  • January 18, 2021 is a national day of service led by incoming President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
  • January 19, 2021 the Presidential Inaugural Committee invites us to light candles and ring church bells at 5:30pm ET in a nationwide moment of unity and remembrance for the victims of COVID-19. A national ceremony will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Our membership drive gift bag includes a candle for you to participate from home.
  • January 20, 2021 is the official Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, broadcast live on most networks and channels. Our membership drive gift bag includes a bottle of Martinelli’s to celebrate!
  • January 27, 2021 at 6:30pm is our first club meeting of the year. Join us for a guest speaker program on the upcoming OC Board of Supervisors special election and our annual Club Board of Directors election. Register here for your Zoom link!

We were fired up in the aftermath of Trump’s election in 2016, and together, we have been making a meaningful impact in politics at every level since that fateful day. Our club has been on the front line during recent elections, successfully electing Democrats to every level of government in 2018 and 2020. Now, we must redouble our efforts to ensure Democrats and progressive candidates prevail in the critical elections that lie ahead.
