Formed in 1992, the Asian Pacific Democratic Club is the longest serving API democratic club West of the Mississippi. The club was renamed the Edwin M. Lee Asian Pacific Democratic Club on January 23rd, 2018, to recognize San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee’s legacy of service to the City and County of San Francisco and the API community. We carry on Mayor Lee’s spirit of leading with compassion, decency, and kindness.We are dedicated to increasing Asian Pacific Islander (API) voters, encouraging awareness of issues, and mobilizing around causes for the community in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Organize Voter Registration
Through our volunteer voter registration drives, we give people an opportunity to register to vote and begin a conversation on issues that matter.
Inspire Young Leaders
We are a grassroots-driven organization dedicated to preparing the next generation of Asian Pacific Islander (API) leaders and young activists. We train responsible caring leaders and volunteers to give back to the community through public service and elected office.
Empower All Voters
We host events to educate and engage voters about local issues and candidates to help unlock people’s ability to make change. From the San Francisco School Board to the Board of Supervisors, it is important to mobilize voters in every election.
