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.

• was chosen as Rep. Ted Lieu’s reelection center …

• registered voters and held forums discussing all ballot props …

• opened the Westside’s biggest shop for political t-shirts and collectibles …

• featured four debate-watch parties, plus comedy nights with Paula Poundstone and Jimmy Tingle
