Welcome Message

We invite you to explore our Website and Facebook Pages where you’ll find information on our Club meetings and events as well as articles and discussion on current political and community issues.

Some people ask, “What is a Democrat?” Democrats believe that regardless of what ethnic group, religion, lifestyle, age or income bracket one is a part of, we are all in this together. As such, Democrats embrace the “We” approach to life, whereby policies should serve the greater good and where everyone’s rights are protected and valued.

Our overriding goals are to help elect representatives who create and uphold laws embodying the “We” principle and to serve our community in the same spirit. Our club members work actively in many endeavors to reach these goals!

Our chief projects are:
candidate and precinct development;
voter registration and voter turnout;
providing a local headquarters for campaign activities;
outreach to the community with food, clothing and other support;
monthly meetings with interesting speakers on relevant topics;
letter writing to the media and elected officials;
taking stands with resolutions on matters of local, state and national interest;
vigils and rallies to bring attention to concerns of residents;
seminars and other educational activities;
exciting fundraising events; and
just plain fun get-togethers!

We’d love to meet you and sincerely hope you’ll join us in our activities. Together, we can advance Democratic values in our communities and beyond.

Mission Statement

The Foothill Communities Democratic Club of San Bernardino County is committed to preserving and fostering the Democratic Party’s principles and it’s spirit of dedication in support of the rights, liberties and dreams of all citizens of American society, with equality and without exclusion, through education, voter registration and personal participation in the political process in all local, state and national political campaigns and elections for public office and political initiatives and referenda.

Our Values

We stand for human rights and social justice. We believe in equal opportunity without the exclusion of any citizen or resident. We are committed to the rule of law and public election of governmental officeholders by Democratic process. We believe that the voting franchise gives us the power to effectuate change and ensure the human rights and social justice will not become subverted by an unjust government as the founding fathers of the Republic had envisioned. We encourage action and the fair sharing of responsibility for the improvements of our community and society as an integrated whole.
