Victory Starts Today! is a volunteer organizing group of Democratic Party-aligned individuals based in West Los Angeles, California that was affiliated with the West LA Democratic Club.

Background

Victory Starts Today! was founded on April 2, 2017 as an affiliate of the West LA Democratic Club, a group jointly chartered by the Democratic Parties of Los Angeles County and California. [1] Mainly, the group organizes on its publicly accessible Facebook group page. As of August 29, 2022, the page counted 349 Facebook users as group members. [2]

Activities

According to the group’s Facebook page, Victory Starts Today! organizes volunteers in California to support the campaigns of Democratic Party candidates by participating in phone banks, canvassing activities, and voter registration initiatives. Additionally, the Facebook page offers a survey link to its members for “making recommendations to the DNC [Democratic National Committee].” However, as of August 29, 2022, the survey is inaccessible. [3] Similarly, and also as of that date, the link the Victory Starts Today! Facebook page provides to guide users to its registration page hosted on the website of the West LA Democratic Club appears to be defunct, as does the entire West LA Democratic Club website. [4] [5]
