We’re the Folsom Area Democratic Club

The Folsom Area Democratic Club was founded to bring together residents and friends who want to help make Folsom – and California and our nation – a more progressive place to live.

The members of our club:

  • support economic, social, racial and gender equality;
  • believe that all citizens benefit when everyone has the basic means to succeed; and
  • advocate for the government’s ability to improve people’s lives.

The 2024 election is one of the most critical Democrats have ever faced. As the opposition becomes more extreme – and its national leader faces incarceration – we must ensure California holds to its long-cherished Democratic and progressive values. We continue to endorse officeholders who support the rights and liberties of all Americans.

FADC members will be working to elect progressive candidates to the Folsom City Council and other local and statewide offices. Follow our Endorsements page to learn about the candidates we support.

Locally, we will continue to lead an important effort we initiated: electing City Council members by district. District representation is the only fair way to ensure every Folsom resident has an equal voice in city government. Our club’s hard work has brought us near to this goal.

As we move past Covid, FADC will hold more events and fundraisers to help elect Democrats at every level. Our club is committed to increasing our membership and expanding Democratic presence and influence in Folsom politics.

Join us to help make Folsom – and the state and nation – more progressive!


So far this year, less than nine months in, according to Gun Violence Archive, nearly 28,000 Americans have been killed by guns. More than half of those were suicides by people who might still be alive if guns weren’t so close at hand. Many were murders from 465 mass shootings. The Folsom Area Democratic Club continues to work for gun safety. We actively support Moms Demand Action, a national organization fighting to protect people from gun violence.

We’re being hampered by freshman congressman, Kevin Kiley, who consistently votes against gun safety legislation. NRA rates him A+.

Unfortunately, it isn’t easy to contact Congressman Kiley. Go to his website, https://kiley.house.gov/, click on “Contact,” and work from there.

We strongly urge you to write emails or letters to your other representatives – in Congress, the Assembly, or on local councils and school boards – pressing them to enact or support gun safety laws as well.

There’s a lot we can do to reduce this senseless loss of life: pass sensible gun laws and reduce access to weapons; regulate the sale of guns and ammunition; reduce youths’ access to guns; implement community safety plans; and so much more.

We’re off to a disastrous start, but let’s vow to make the rest of his year free of mass shootings and gun violence.
