the oldest and largest African American Democratic Club in the State of California
The New Frontier Democratic Club is the oldest and largest African American Democratic Club in the State of California. We are fortunate to have a majority of the regions’ African American Elected Officials as members.
In 1960, the New Frontier Democratic Club (NFD) was founded by a few African American leaders in Los Angeles whose concern was to provide this community with a political vehicle for involvement in the presidential campaign of John F. Kennedy. In the 1990’s many of the same issues evident in 1960 demanded that New Frontier Democrats play an even larger role in the community’s fight for increased political and economic power. The Democratic State Party enables NFDC to focus on achieving five goals:
Fostering active participation by the community citizenry in politics and electing qualified Democratic candidates to public office;
Building a strong political organization that is receptive, reputable and responsive to the needs of the community;
Encouraging full participation by the community in the political process and providing education and guidance in the use of this process;
Promoting the growth and effectiveness of the Democratic Party;
Identifying, training, developing and supporting potential candidates for public office.
