About the PDC

The Peninsula Democratic Coalition works to promote the Democratic Party and get local Democrats elected. Our members come from throughout the communities in Silicon Valley. We offer monthly events such as luncheons, speakers, and debates. We sponsor voter registration drives at peninsula events throughout the year. We also have a few big annual events each year such as our February Annual Meeting, Summer Picnic and December Holiday Party.

The PDC Board of Directors is elected annually at The PDC Annual Meeting. The Board meets at 7:30 pm on the second Wednesday of each month in Room 8 at the Palo Alto Unitarian Church. All PDC members are welcome to attend the Board Meetings. The PDC Board Members are listed below.
