What We Stand For

The Democratic Party is:

The Party of the People

We have an abiding faith in the judgment of hardworking American families.

We believe each of us has value to the community.

We remember that our country was sculpted by immigrants and slaves, their children and grandchildren. It is our diversity above all else that provides us with our enduring strength.

We believe government’s role is to maintain safety and security at home while seeking peace and cooperation abroad.

We regard elected officials as stewards of the people entrusted with providing for the common good through economic fairness, equality of opportunity, inclusiveness and social justice.

The Party of Equality

Diversity is strength

We trust in the Constitution, with its principles of full equality and the protection of individual rights.

We believe that every American has the right to affordable healthcare, quality public education, and equal opportunity in the work place.

We value fair and equal justice for all, regardless of race, gender, nationality, age, economic status, sexual identity or religion.

The Party of Fiscal Responsibility

We are committed to strengthening our economy by spurring job creation, rebuilding our infrastructure, investing in clean-energy technologies and restoring fairness and opportunity.

We recognize that our country and our economy are strongest when they provide opportunity for all Americans—not just the rich and privileged.

We champion middle class working America with support for fair wages and fair trade agreements that protect American jobs.
