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.
You can download our bylaws here.
For the last eight+ years, DFNYC has hosted the first Wednesday of the month Democracy of America linkups in New York City. It is our tradition. These linkups started in 2003 as the monthly organizing meetups for volunteers of the Howard Dean presidential campaign, and have continued ever since as a place/time where progressives around the country can meet and share our ideas and concerns.
This year's election is now over but the real battles are just beginning. The future of this country is in the balance. It has never been more important for progressives to be united in pursuit of our causes and in support of those elected officials who stand with us.
Please join DFNYC for our December DFA linkup/meetup and lets talk about finding the ways to keep fighting the good fight! We will be having linkups in both Manhattan and Brooklyn this month. The Manhattan linkup details are below. The Brooklyn linkup details will be announced shortly.
