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 NYC strongly condemns the action of Lowe's Home Improvement, Inc., in pulling their advertising from the The Learning Channel's program "All American Muslim" due to the complaints of the "Florida Family Association" and their leader, David Caton, who called the program "propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda's clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values."
"All American Muslim" is a program that is educating the public on the lives of Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan, and is no better or worse than any other put on the air by The Learning Channel to educate the public on the many different lifestyles of Americans across the country.
Democracy For NYC urges all followers and friends to contact Lowe's Home Improvment, Inc.. at Lowes.com and its CEO, Robert A. Niblock, and let them know how much you disagree with their actions. You can also submit handwritten letters with the following address:
1000 Lowe's Boulevard
