The 2018 DVC Headquarters

The new DVC Headquarters at 960 San Antonio Road in Palo Alto.

The Democratic Volunteer Center is Silicon Valley’s all-volunteer campaign center dedicated to electing Democrats. Serving northern Santa Clara and southern San Mateo counties, we maintain a permanent volunteer community, foster unity across the Democratic political spectrum, and amplify the activism of the mid-Peninsula on the local, national, and federal levels.

The DVC brings together liberals and progressives in Silicon Valley, working together to achieve our democratic values. We support a new generation of Democrats to keep our democracy of the people, by the people, and for the people. The DVC creates interest in local and national politics to contribute to the growth and influence of the ideals of the Democratic party.

See our Events page for regular hours and special events.

You Can Help Take Back Congress

Your time and financial support are both valuable tools for taking back Congress, bolstering democratic institutions, and restoring America’s reputation. By funding the DVC, you create valuable unifying conversations and drive success for local and national campaigns.

The DVC raises its own funds separate from the Democratic Party and relies on donations to fund phone-banking, events, facilities, and utilities. It is run entirely by volunteers, with no paid staff.

An inspiring day with Barney Frank

Thanks to all of you who came out on Saturday afternoon to support the DVC and hear Barney Frank offer us wisdom and hope for the fight ahead. DVC ally Anna Eshoo introduced Barney, who entertained us all with many inspiring and hilarious stories from his distinguished political career but offered us one stirring theme throughout: to save democracy, it’s time to be partisan. He suggested we at DVC have been underselling ourselves the whole time—we’re not just empowering volunteers, we’re validating the existence of democracy itself! You can hear all of Barney’s stories and his inspiring message in this video:

 

The DVC does the impossible: we transformed a hotel conference room into a state of the art phone-banking center in less than an hour. In one hour of calling, we made 598 calls to contested precincts in Pennsylvania’s 18th District, helping Democrat Conor Lamb defeat Rick Saccone in a heavily Republican district.
