About the San Francisco District 11 Democratic Club
The District 11 Democratic Club is an officially chartered Democratic Party organization in Supervisorial District 11, San Francisco City and County.
The Club hosts special events and activities including Civic Education Outreach, Membership Meetings, Endorsements, and other special events depending on the election calendar. In election years, we produce a Door Hanger Guide for Voters with voting information and a list of endorsements. We also produce a GOTV mailer with our endorsements. General Membership Meetings featuring discussions of topical issues are usually scheduled on the second Wednesday of February, April, September, and November. In addition, we schedule a Dinner & Auction on the first Friday of June and a Holiday Party on the first Sunday of December. Board Meetings are scheduled by special arrangement. The Club is administered by a Board of Directors; Club members, who wish to become more actively involved are invited to consider volunteer opportunities as a board member or chair.
