  • Organizing voters to elect candidates who put our core Democratic values into action.
  • Holding elected officials accountable to the values and principles of our party through public advocacy, coalition work and our endorsement process.
  • Asking candidates seeking our support to pledge to put our shared Democratic values into practice.



"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education."
