American River Democrats
The American River Democrats is a chartered club of the Democratic Party of Sacramento County. We meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7 pm More than 160 years ago, gold was discovered along the American River, and people flocked to this area from around the world. They sifted through vast quantities of material in order to find each precious bit of gold. Today, the American River Democrats are panning for progressives in California’s Gold Country. The mission of the American River Democrats is to create the conditions necessary to elect more Democrats in the communities of northeastern Sacramento County through which the American River flows, including Folsom, Orangevale, Fair Oaks and Rancho Cordova. We will achieve this mission by • educating our communities about the guiding principles and political positions of the Democratic Party • supporting candidates and elected officials who embrace the Democratic Party agenda • developing our members’ capabilities in voter contact and issue advocacy • conducting the business of our club in an open, inclusive, and democratic manner.
