Democracy for NYC (DFNYC) is committed to the ideals espoused by Democracy for America, the organization founded by Howard Dean, and the national network of local coalition groups dedicated to the same.
We work both locally and nationally to ensure that fiscally responsible and socially progressive candidates are elected at all levels of government. We develop innovative ways to advocate for the issues that matter to our members and support legislation which has a positive effect in our communities. We promote transparency and ethical practices in government. We engage people in the political process and give them the tools to organize, communicate, mobilize, and enact change on the local, state, and national level.

Democracy for America (DFA) and DFNYC are supporting our friend and fellow member Zephyr Teachout in her race for Congress in the NY 19th District. The 19th District is upstate and includes Kingston, New Paltz, Woodstock, Rhinebeck and surrounding area. Zephyr is a true progressive whose main issue is curbing the influence of big money in politics. We think she will be a star in Congress.
