Active since the 1950s, the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) has opened and run presidential election HQs every four years that consistently became top performers for the Democratic Party. In 2020 the effort went virtual, as PPDC supported the Westside Democratic Headquarters (WDHQ) and the Grassroots Dems HQ, both now nationally influential and active year-round instead of every four years.
