In 1960, the New Frontier Democratic Club (NFD) was founded by a few African American leaders in Los Angeles whose concern was to provide this community with a political vehicle for involvement in the presidential campaign of John F. Kennedy. Today many of the same issues still evident as in 1960 demanding New Frontier Democrats play an even larger role in the community's fight for increased political and economic power. The Democratic State Party enables NFDC to focus on achieving five goals: Fostering active participation by the community citizenry in politics and electing qualified Democratic candidates to public office; Building a strong political organization that is receptive, reputable and responsive to the needs of the community; Encouraging full participation by the community in the political process and providing education and guidance in the use of this process; Promoting the growth and effectiveness of the Democratic Party; and, Identifying, training, developing and supporting potential candidates for public office
