Who We Are
We are Democrats!
For decades Democrats have fought on behalf of the notion that anyone from any walk of life should have a fair shot of achieving their hopes and aspirations. We are the party of the American Dream and American Dreamers. Democrats are the party of good trouble and “si, se puede.” From Selma to Stonewall we have taken to the streets for the cause of equal rights because every American deserves basic fairness no matter the individual’s gender, faith, race, who they are or who they love. We are the party of clean air and water, and we are never going to stop fighting to protect the world we leave our children. We are the party of common sense gun violence solutions because this epidemic has got to end. Democrats are the party of reproductive health, because women, not politicians, should be in charge of their own bodies. We are the party of Medicare and Social Security and our fight for the health and well being of all Americans did not stop at the desk of LBJ, generations later we are fighting to improve and keep the Affordable Care Act. Because no family should have to choose between going to the grocery store and going to the doctor, paying for food or paying for cancer treatment. We are the party of the New Deal and economic recovery, because we know in our hearts that if you work hard and play by the rules anyone ought to be able to get ahead. Democrats know that our nation is stronger when we have an economy that grows paychecks, creates good paying jobs and gives regular folks a chance to succeed. We know from our history the power of ordinary people to effect extraordinary change. And we are ready to effect extraordinary change like never before. We are Democrats!!!
