Welcome to the Staten Island Democratic Association (SIDA) Website 




SIDA was the first New York City political club with a website, with an online presence dating back to 1995.


Founded in 1961, SIDA is Staten Island's oldest, largest and most progressive Democratic Club.


Our meetings feature local & national politicians, media personalities, consultants, authors, activists & lots of spirited discussion.


We engage in advocacy for candidates, causes & issues. 


 "I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the 

 political world as storms are in the physical." Thomas Jefferson, 1787
