Welcome to

The Coronado Democratic Club

The Coronado Democratic Club stands against all forms of political violence. Our deepest sympathies are with the families of those killed and injured at the July 13, 2024, rally in Pennsylvania where an attempt was made on former president Trump’s life. This violence is abhorrent and has no place in the United States of America. We hope that the country will recommit to civil discourse.

John Lewis, late civil rights activist and
Member of the U.S. House of Representatives
