On working together while we’re apart (En español)

A message from Pat Sabo, Chair, Sonoma County Democratic Party

First, I want to assure all my fellow Democrats that our overriding concern is the health and safety of our members, volunteers and communities. On March 16, we temporarily closed our Campaign Headquarters to the public and cancelled in-person volunteer events and meetings. During this public health crisis, we will continue to follow the guidelines of the County health department and the Governor’s office.

Yet at the same time, we recognize the importance of staying focused on our goals for 2020: to win the White House, take back the Senate, and defeat Trumpism on all levels. Many of you have already invested enormous energy in this effort, and we will do all we can to keep the momentum going. We’re working to shift our field of operations online, and over the next few weeks will be sharing news of our activities and invitations to join us, whether it’s by phone banking or text banking from home, participating in training sessions or postcard parties via Zoom, or sharing stories and photos of your at-home activism on our social media.

Our history shows that the worst of times often brings out the best in Americans. Let’s dig deep into who we are and all we have in common as citizens — not just of this country but of the world. Together, we’ll get through this.



We’re the Sonoma County Democratic Party, aka Sonoma Dems.

We are the official voice for Democrats living in Sonoma County. Our values are reflected in the actions we take to influence the Party locally, and at the state and national levels.

Our mission is to elect strong Democrats and advance policies and programs that will protect the environment, workers’ rights, civil rights, social justice, and to build an economy that creates opportunity for all.

We believe that government works best when people get involved, so we work to inform the public, increase voter registration, and engage with policy-makers to advocate for democratic values. 

It all starts at the grassroots.

Join us!
