The Democratic Club of Claremont gives people in the Claremont area a chance to discuss issues, talk to candidates and office-holders, and work to elect Democrats to state and national offices. Even if you don't have the time or the inclination to run for office yourself, you can play a role in politics through the club.
All DCC members and interested Democrats are encouraged to attend our Annual Holiday Party on Sunday, December 1, 2019. The event will begin at 4:00 PM, in the Napier Commons Room, 660 Avery Road, on the campus of Pilgrim Place.
The Helen Myers Award, our annual recognition for exemplary leadership and service, will be given this year to Gene Boutilier and The American Institute for Progressive Democracy (TAIPD).
The program will include a buffet, music, recognition of elected representatives and awards. Club members are asked to come, renew, BYOB.
The Claremont Manifesto is designed to suggest a new vision and program to capture the hearts and minds of the American people.
It represents an appeal to Republicans, Independents and Democrats alike - to consider the renewal of the vision of the U.S. as a Commonwealth in which people of good will cooperate for the common good as well as for individual fulfillment. It asks them to consider a return to the view of our society first advocated by our nation's Founders: The view of America as a Commonwealth in which we all work together to create a better, more peaceful and just world for ourselves and for our children. Based upon a wide array of polls and other data, we are confident that this is a vision most Americans now share.
