BACKGROUND & LEADERSHIP
The West Hollywood Democratic Club was founded 1985 following West Hollywood's incorporation. In 2005, local activists in Beverly Hills formed Beverly Hills Democrats as part of efforts to establish a grassroots Democratic club. These groups merged in 2009 to create the West Hollywood|Beverly Hills Democratic Club. We are officially chartered by the LA County Democratic Party and the California Democratic Party.
