The West LA Democratic Club is the official Democratic organization for this large region. Our organization meets monthly to plan, organize and discuss Democratic politics. We are a grassroots force behind political campaigns and initiatives. Our members include everyone from local citizens to members of Congress and local city government.

The WLADC Board meets on the first Monday of each month at the IHOP located at 8600 S. Sepulveda Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90045 at 7PM.

In addition, we hold monthly General Meetings, usually at St. Bede's Episcopal Church in Mar Vista, for all members and guests. At these meetings, we wish to educate and entertain. We hold debates among candidates, discussions with popular authors, and stimulating discussions devoted to topical issues. Any ideas? Contact us. Click "Find an Event" to see what we have coming up!
