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 New York City congratulates Mayor-elect Bill De Blasio, his team and his family on a historic victory and a great campaign. Our members enthusiastically endorsed our new mayor early on and helped him through the summer and fall. It is truly the dawn of a new era in New York City and we are proud to have been a part of the campaign, and we are excited to be involved in what is to come! We look forward to working with Bill on his agenda, and we will join in his fight for every citizen to be treated with dignity and respect, and to have an equal chance to participate in our democracy and live the american dream.
We also congratulate our entire slate of DFNYC endiorsed candidates who also won last night, including our friends Tish James and Scott Stringer, who are going to be a great Public Advoate and Comptroller respectively.
