Democrats believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls. We are greater together than we are on our own.
We are the people—diverse, inclusive, and united by the principles of the Democratic Party. In these times, your vote matters more than ever. Every human being counts. Every community counts. Every vote counts.
Civil Rights: Democrats will always fight to end discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, language, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
Education: Democrats know that every child, no matter who they are, how much their families earn, or where they live, should have access to a high-quality education, from preschool through high school and beyond.
Environment: Democrats believe that climate change poses a real and urgent threat to our economy, our national security, and our children’s health and futures, and that Americans deserve the jobs and security that come from becoming the clean energy superpower of the 21st century.
Health Care: Democrats have been fighting to secure universal health care for the American people for generations, and we are proud to be the party that passed Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act.
Immigration Reform: Democrats believe immigration is not just a problem to be solved, it is a defining aspect of the American character and our shared history.
Jobs and the Economy: We are committed to doing everything we can to build a full-employment economy, where everyone has a job that pays enough to raise a family and live in dignity with a sense of purpose.
Retirement Security: Seniors should not have to choose between putting food on the table, keeping a roof over their heads, or buying the medication that they need to stay healthy.
Voting Rights: The Democratic Party was founded on the promise of an expanded democracy. Democrats believe we must make it easier to vote, not harder.
Science and Technology: Democrats value American technological innovation and scientific ingenuity and believe it is one of our country’s great strengths.
National Security: Democrats believe that America must lead in the world to grow our economy, protect our interests and values, and make our country safer and more prosperous. Democrats further believe that when America leads, it must be as a principled force for peace and prosperity in the world.
"Change happens. Hope happens. Not perfection. Not every bit of cruelty and sadness and poverty and disease suddenly stricken from the earth. There will still be problems. But with each new candidate that surprises you with a victory that you supported, a spark of hope happens." — Barack Obama
