The Escondido Democratic Club (EDC) is a chartered club of the San Diego County Democratic Party.
The EDC provides opportunities for active political participation for members of the California Democratic Party in the Escondido area. We unite to defend democratic principles, to take progressive stands on the issues facing us and to support Democratic candidates for office, thereby contributing to the democratic process in America.
All of us are equal under the law and deserves protection that the law provides. All of us deserve the opportunities that would enable us to live full and meaningful lives. Diversity is a strength and a cause for celebration — not a reason to be divided.
The future belongs to those who can dream it and are willing to work toward fulfilling the dream. The EDC is a catalyst for change in Escondido. We will recruit, endorse and support candidates for local candidates for a better Escondido for all.
