Our DCCSC

The Mission

Our mission is to build, promote and sustain Democratic values and ideals, including 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 local 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.

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