Welcome to the River City Democratic Club of West Sacramento
We’re a passionate group brought together by a common purpose to promote Democratic ideals in our city. Have a look around to learn what we're all about, find resources to help you become involved politically, and if you're interested join up and become a member.
The River City Democratic Club is aware of dehumanizing public comments about the LGBTQ+ community at two Washington Unified School District meetings. This fits in with a broader pattern of increasing hate speech, crimes, and anti-LGBTQ+ legislation across the country. As a club, we strongly condemn those remarks and urge our WUSD Trustees to make certain that strong safeguards are in place to ensure that LGBTQ+ students have every available opportunity to find the loving support from their peers that they may not be getting at home.
Confidential membership in school clubs targeted to LGBTQ+ kids is crucial. If a child isn’t ready to come out to family or has a family that isn’t accepting, they can be a part of a community that may ease feelings of loneliness.
Directly from the Trevor Project’s website:
“Many LGBTQ youth lack access to affirming spaces, with only 55% of LGBTQ youth
reporting that their school is LGBTQ-affirming and only 37% saying that their home is LGBTQ-affirming. Fewer than 1 in 3 transgender and nonbinary youth found their home to be gender-affirming and a little more than half (51%) found their school to be affirming. The Trevor Project’s research consistently finds that LGBTQ young people report lower rates of attempting suicide when they have access to LGBTQ-affirming spaces.”
The River City Democratic Club stands strongly with our LGBTQ+ student population and those educators helping to create the safe spaces they need to grow and thrive.
