Peace and civil rights activists in Riverside County helped form the Peace and Freedom Party, taking part in discussions in 1966 and early 1967 before the first registrations of Peace and Freedom Party voters in 1967. An active registration drive during 1967 signed up hundreds of party members in the county, particularly in Riverside and Elsinore (now Lake Elsinore). In January 1968, the party achieved ballot status in California. Ever since then, there has been an organized party chapter in Riverside County.
As of September 5, 2008, there are 2017 voters registered in the Peace and Freedom Party in Riverside County. The County Central Committee presently has four members.

Some current activities include active opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a September 27, 2008 vigil against an attack on Iran (attended by Ralph Nader, our candidate for President), participation by a Central Committee member in inspections and analysis of the voting systems that have caused so much trouble for the county, and helping to mobilize opposition to the destruction of the old Riverside Chinatown site in the Tequesquite Arroyo, on land that was supposed to be set aside for a park, for the construction of an unneeded office building by a politically-connected developer.
