This is a group of Silicon Valley voters who supported Gov. Howard Dean's candidacy for President and subsequently the organization he started when his campaign ended: Democracy for America. We cheered when he took over the DNC 2005-9, steering it toward grassroots involvement away from emphasis on fat-cat contributions. Check back often for info on upcoming events and news.

Looking for an ACTIVIST club? Join us (if you haven't already)! You can do that at our website (link above). Since 2004 we have walked hundreds of precincts for our endorsed candidates (Ira Ruskin, Obama, McNerney, Charlie Brown, John Laird, Rich Gordon, Jeff Rosen, Jamie McLeod, many more), raised probably in 6 figures, phoned tens of thousands, registered 1000s to vote, held informational forums, lobbied in Sacto for clean money/fair elections healthcare, gotten into the statewide county Democratic party structure. Among Santa Clara county Democratic clubs we're known as the club that walks the walk. You'll find us lively, well-informed, nonideological, practical, and good to be working alongside for a brighter future.
