Democrats recognize that our country and our economy are strongest when they provide opportunity for all Americans.
Democrats believe that each of us has an obligation to each other, to our neighbors and our communities. Each of us has a role to play in creating our future--and while we have made great progress as a nation, we know that our work is never done.
The Plantation Democratic Club meets on the second Tuesday of the month
No July Meeting -- Next Meeting - Tuesday, August 13th Deicke Auditorium - 7PM
Our mission is to support voter enfranchisement through registration and Get Out the Vote initiatives and to provide voter education through canvassing and candidate and speaker forums. We will support our Democratic candidates and work for the issues that are compatible with our Party’s ideals.

I am humbled to be elected President of the Plantation Democratic Club and I take this responsibility very seriously. This is a critical time to be an American and a Democrat. We are living in one of the most divisive periods in our country’s history with our institutions under attack on a daily basis. Our current President has made it his goal to divide our population with his rhetoric of fear and hatred of “the other”. His policies and appointments have clearly favored the rich and powerful to the detriment of the average citizen.
We, as Democrats, must do all we can both locally and nationally, to change the narrative. Our electoral triumphs in the 2018 midterm elections were a great start as we gained 40 seats and flipped the House of Representatives to Democratic control for the first time in eight years as well as, gaining seven Governorships and more than 350 state legislative seats around the country. All of this was accomplished despite the Republican’s best efforts at voter suppression and gerrymandering. However, our efforts, especially here in Florida fell short. We lost both the U.S. Senate race and the Governor’s race by the smallest of margins.
This is where you can help. I urge you to get involved and join the effort. The next Presidential race is right around the corner and we need all hands on deck. Our Plantation Democratic Club is one of the most active groups in Broward County. We are on the forefront of the effort to register more voters, to promote citizen ballot initiatives and have every Democrat in our community vote.
We can’t do it without you! Please consider joining our club and getting involved. We have many volunteer opportunities available for you to choose from. I look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming meetings.
Steve Siegel, President
