Welcome to Valley Grassroots for Democracy!

Based in "America's Suburb," Southern California's San Fernando Valley, Valley Grassroots for Democracy has its roots in the 2004 presidential election. Our members were some of the founders of grassroots organizations supporting several presidential candidates. They travelled across the country to support their candidates in the caucuses and primaries. We all rallied behind the Party's ticket in the 2004 General Election and helped win an impressive majority for the Kerry/Edwards/Boxer ticket in the Valley.

In 2005 Valley for Democracy (formerly Valley for Dean) and Valley Grassroots (formerly Valley for Kerry) came together to form Valley Grassroots for Democracy. Our first challenge as a combined group was to help our endorsed candidate for mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, win overwhelmingly in May, 2005.

We became a Democratic Club on September 10, 2005, and were charted by the Los Angeles County Democratic Party on September 13, 2005. We are affilliated with the Democratic Party of the San Fernando Valley (DPSFV), California for Democracy, and Democracy for America.

In the brief time since becoming chartered we have become one of the largest and most active Democratic clubs in the Valley with over 250 dues-paying members. Over 2200 people receive our weekly email updates. All of our members (really, all of them!) worked on the 2005 Special Election, defeating Arnold's agenda. We are proud to have worked to elect President Obama, Governor Brown, and Senators Boxer and Feinstein.

We support a Progressive agenda of clean money, healthcare for all, election integrity, fiscal responsibility, and an end to the war in Iraq. And we support candidates who support those ideals. We believe that a strong country starts with a strong community and have organized several community service activities, such as Habitat for Humanity, packages for the troops, phone cards for injured veterans, and food bank collections.

Not content to just change the country, we are also working to change the Democratic Party. Many of our members have become members of the Democratic State Central Committee, the Los Angeles County Democratic Central Committee, and the executive board of DPSFV (Democratic Party of the San Fernando Valley.)

We meet every month at the Van Nuys State Building Auditorium at 6150 Van Nuys Blvd at Calvert. We work hard to have an interesting program every month. In odd-numbered months we meet on the 3rd Saturday at 10 am. In even-numbered months we meet on the 3rd Thursday at 7 pm.

All Progressives in the Valley are invited to work with us to take our country back!
