Welcome to

The Coronado Democratic Club

The Coronado Democratic Club was established in 1888 and proudly supports Democrats in San Diego County, California, and across the country. We support the values and principles of the Democratic Party – including the conviction that all Americans should have fair access to opportunity through respectful and equal treatment regardless of race, gender, beliefs, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.
