Who We Are

About Us

Founded in 2016, the United Democratic Club (UDC) is a diverse group of Democrats who seek to unify and empower San Francisco’s many shades of Democratic blue so we are best prepared to promote and defend Democratic ideals on a local, state, and national level. Our 100% volunteer board aims to fight for social justice, protect those who are vulnerable and work to provide economic opportunities for all.

Our mission is to empower Democrats across San Francisco to foster civic and philanthropic engagement.
