The Committee is the local representative of the California Democratic Party determined by California Election Code and the California Democratic Party. We provide assistance at the county level to all national, state, and local Democratic candidates.

We are your voice as a Democrat in Humboldt County.






In a coordinated effort, the Humboldt County Legal Defense Fund, Centro del Pueblo, and SURJ Humboldt have authored a petition aimed at protecting our local immigrant friends and neighbors. 

We need YOUR HELP to help reach the goal - an ambitious one! - of 5,000  signatures, so that the petition can be delivered to local governmental and law enforcement agencies to demonstrate the wide base of support for these issues here in Humboldt.

No matter how much time you have to dedicate, there's an option for you to help -

  • If you have 60 seconds, please tag 50 friends in the FB post you make.
  • If you have 3 minutes, (a) you're our hero, and (b) in addition to the steps above, please email the petition info to 50 of your local friends.

Together, we can make Humboldt County a safe haven for everyone.



At its January 112017 meeting the Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee voted to endorse Mary Burke for McKinleyville Community Services District. Deadline for returning mail-in ballots is March  142017.



ROY ZIMMERMAN in Concert: ReZist!

Monday, February 20, 2017,  7pm

Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship,  

24 Fellowship Way, Bayside, Ca 95 524


The public is invited to Roy Zimmerman’s amazing live concert REZIST on Monday evening, 7 PM, February 20, 2017, at the Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (24 Fellowship Way, Bayside –off Jacoby Creek Road).

Roy Zimmerman does not find Donald Trump irresistible.  In fact, “ReZist” is the name of Zimmerman’s new show.

Zimmerman writes funny songs about racism, income inequality, guns, climate change, creationism, same-sex marriage, ignorance, war and greed. “ReZist” is ninety minutes of these songs - funny songs and Zimmerman’s hilarious, rhyme-intensive originals are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable.  “Sometimes I think satire is the most hopeful form of expression,” says Roy, “because in calling out the world's absurdities and laughing in their face, I'm affirming the real possibility of change.”

Progressive Americans are asking how to resist,” says Zimmerman, “how to deal with the hourly national outrages. Ghandi said, ‘First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.’  I say, first WE laugh at THEM…and that’s all I’ve got so far.”

Join us at this Concert that will enliven the progressive movement in Humboldt County!

Suggested donation:  $20, no one turned away.  For further information, contact HUUF, 707-822-3793

President Donald Trump, breaking his promise to the American people and disregarding 40 years of precedent, now says he won’t  release his tax returns and that Americans don’t care about them. He’s dead wrong.

Transparency is a non-partisan issue. This legislation will require presidential candidates of any party to make five years of their tax returns public – starting with the next presidential election here in California. Help us restore accountability and transparency to the office of the President



There's no way to sugar coat it. Things right now are bad. We know that many of you are super energized to get involved and fight for our shared values, and we're writing today with one idea for how you can do just that.

Transforming our current national leadership to one guided by progressive values is going to take time. The actions we invest now will pay off over the long haul. One of the most important things we can do is to engage deeply at a local level. By shaping our local and state governments, we can push for the change we need from the bottom up.
