Formed as an outgrowth of Howard Dean's presidential campaign, Democracy For America has sought to mobilize the people who got involved in that campaign in further action, recruiting and assisting Democratic candidates from the Senate all the way down to county-level office.

Goals

  • To have strong, sustained grassroots involvement in the democratic process.
  • To promote an America where candidates and office holders tell the truth about policy choices and stand up for what they believe. The era when politicians equivocate about matters as fundamental as war and peace must end.
  • To fight against the influence and agenda of the two pillars of George W. Bush's Washington: the far right-wing and their radical, divisive policies, and the selfish special interests who for too long have dominated politics.
  • To fight for progressive policies like health care for all; investment in children; equal rights under law; fiscal responsibility; and a national security policy that makes America stronger by advancing progressive values.
