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.

From the beginning, Democracy for New York City has been an organization that is run from the bottom up - that's a vital part of our mission and reason for being. But in order to be that kind of organization, we need information from all of you, our members, about how we are doing - and what priorities to set for Democracy for NYC's focus in the new year.
