About Democrats


  • Our Party

For more than 200 years, Democrats have fought for the interests of working families and equal opportunities for all Americans. We believe in an America where we don’t just look out for ourselves. We’re proud of our individualism, but we also know that we rise and fall as one nation. Throughout history, Democrats have worked from the ground up to bring about the change that matters.

  • Our History

The history of our country is a history of change. America’s genius throughout has been its ability to renew our promise to provide citizens the opportunity for a better life—and though our own history isn’t perfect, the mission of the Democrats has been to make that promise a reality.

  • Our Leaders

Throughout history, Democratic Party leaders have fought to make the changes that matter most to the American people. Today, a new generation of leaders continues that proud tradition.

  • In Your State

In states, cities, and neighborhoods across the country, Democrats are working to build local organizations from the ground up. Democrats in every state help with electoral efforts, voter registration, candidate recruitment, volunteer recruitment, and training.

What We Stand For

For over 200 years, Democrats have stood for the idea that wealth and status should not be an entitlement to rule. Democrats recognize that our country and our economy are strongest when they provide opportunity for all Americans—when we grow our country from the bottom up.

Democrats stand for an abiding faith in the judgment of hardworking American families, and a commitment to helping the excluded, the disenfranchised and the poor strengthen our nation by earning themselves a piece of the American Dream. We remember that our country was sculpted by immigrants and slaves, their children and grandchildren. Even today, it is our diversity above all else that provides us with our enduring strength.

Democrats believe that each of us has an obligation to each other, to our neighbors and our communities. Each of us has a role to play in creating our future—and while we have made great progress as a nation, we know that our work is never done.

We Stand For:

Elections: Voter Protection & Information

Democrats have a long and proud history of fighting for voting rights that continues to this day, and the Democratic National Committee is dedicated to ensuring that every voter has the information necessary to exercise his or her right to vote. But this work requires volunteers like you, watching and holding officials accountable.

  • Voting Information

RaiseYourVote.com is a one-stop, online voter information hub where you can register to vote and get everything you need to make your voice heard.

  • The Accountability Project

For too long, our politics has been poisoned with misinformation, lies, and doublespeak. The Accountability Project is a volunteer platform to document Republican candidates and their public statements at local events, as well as their campaign tactics.  http://my.democrats.org/page/content/ap/about
