About BAND
Bay Area New Democrats (BAND), formed in 1999, is the oldest of the active Democratic clubs in the Houston metropolitan bay area. We are a diverse and effective club combining hard work on important issues and camaraderie with like-minded friends. In even-numbered election years, BAND traditionally opens a Democratic campaign headquarters in the Clear Lake area for state and/or national elections. The club sponsors rallies, town hall meetings, fundraisers and social events as well. Our members are active in various organizations in support of the community, voter registration and information, women and minority rights, immigration, the environment, education, consumer protection, faith-based groups and more.

BAND Meetings
BAND meets on the second Wednesday of every month at the Bay Area Community Center in Clear Lake Park, at 5002 E. NASA Pkwy. in Seabrook. Our meetings often feature a guest speaker along with discussions on field projects and local issues. We start with social time at 6:30 p.m., and the program begins at 7 p.m.
