The Mission

We build, sustain and promote the Democratic ideals, values and mission of equal rights and equal opportunity for all people, regardless of race, religion ethnicity or sexual orientation.

The Democratic Central Committee of Shasta County (DCCSC) is a locally controlled affiliate of the California Democratic Party, and is composed of General Members, Ex-Officio Members, Alternate Members, and Associate Members.

The DCCSC has several chartered and ad-hoc clubs and committees that focus on the needs of local working families, expanding healthcare options, and addressing women’s issues, the environment and education.

Our monthly forums feature speakers and films on a range of subjects, and we produce an in-house interview show on YouTube highlighting local issues, called The MC. 

We invite you to volunteer your time, donate to our local campaigns, and help us build a foundation for future electoral success. 


Build, sustain and promote the Democratic ideals, values and mission, of equal rights and equal opportunity for all people, regardless of race, religion ethnicity or sexual orientation and we work to promote the California Democratic Party Platform.
