We’re a group of friends who care and make an impact together. 

Our story

This is Us

We’re not a company, organization, or political campaign. We’re a group of friends from Portland, Oregon who came together out of concern after the 2016 US election. We had no idea what to do, but we wanted to do something.

We decided the best way to strengthen our democracy was to participate in it. To our amazement, we discovered that people all across the country were doing the same thing. Thanks in part to the work of people like us, the 2018 midterm elections were a sweeping victory for Democratic candidates.

As we turned our attention to the 2020 election, we wanted to create a way to stay politically active while living busy lives. The idea for Democracy Club was born, and we’ve been meeting and taking action ever since.
