The East Bay Stonewall Democratic Club was founded in 1982 to give voice to the East Bay LGBTQQI community. The Club was organized and established to:

  • Further equality through the political process and community activism
  • Bring together lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQQI) individuals and our allies to achieve equality for all and advance progressive values through the Democratic Party
  • Raise the the issue of LGBTQQI rights in political campaigns
  • Lobby for legislation that advances and upholds the rights of LGBTQQI individuals

The Club is governed by an active board of committed volunteers according to the bylaws of the organization.

We encourage you to get involved. You can support our efforts by becoming a member, making a donation, or volunteering your time and talents!


November 2018 General Endorsements

November 2018 Endorsements

On September 13, 2018 close to 100 club members cast votes on Rent Board, School Board, City Council and Mayoral across Alameda County, as well as the Assembly District 15 race. In order to secure the endorsement of the club, a candidate needed to receive support from at least 60% of the votes cast in that race. A designation of "No Endorsement" means that no candidate in the race reached the 60% threshold or that the club's membership chose the "No Endorsement" option over endorsement of any candidate. Below are the results for all races. (The club only releases the results and not individual vote counts.)
