A few background links on the speakers and their work
The Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club is an activist Democratic Party club in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. Come join us — and millions of grassroots Democrats nationwide — in the project to support progressive social movements, elect Democrats to office and advance the causes of peace, freedom, and social justice. Our club is a friendly and engaging community. Activities range from educational forums, candidate endorsements, campaigns on issues, and precinct-walking to picnics and parties. We advocate and mobilize for progressive change right here in our local communities, and we network with other Democratic clubs and activist organizations regionally, statewide, and nationwide to make a difference beyond the Bay Area.
General meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of the month — except for the months listed at the bottom of this page. We invite you to attend.
Progressive Democrats are rebuilding the Democratic Party from the bottom up – in every Congressional District, every state government, and in the corridors of power in Washington. The Democratic Party can and should speak to the concerns of Americans in every walk of life, of every ethnicity, religion, and sex/gender orientation.
The Wellstone Club advocates for immigrant rights and sanctuary cities.
We introduce the Club on the About page of this website. You can join the club here: Join. For more information about the Club’s vision and activities, see as well the Blog, Events, Committees, Elections 2020, and Documents/Videos pages. We look forward to meeting you.
