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.

The events in Orlando underscore the need to renew our calls for the ban of sales of semi automatic weapons. DFNYC is a member of the New Yorkers Against Gun Violence coalition. NYAGV is encouraging people to contact their local elected Congressional representation and demand a federal ban on assault weapons. At the time there was such a ban but it was tragically allowed to expire. Please use NYAGV's website links to contact your representatives:
