Welcome to the Staten Island Democratic Association (SIDA) Website
SIDA was the first New York City political club with a website.
Our online presence dates 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
