Who We Are
The Westchester-Playa Democratic Club is comprised of grassroots Los Angeles Democrats standing up for progressive values, working hand-in-hand with our community and our Westchester, Playa del Rey and Playa Vista elected officials.
One person can make a difference, and people making a difference together is who we are! If you are interested in joining the Club, please click here.
