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.
DFNYC's February linkup, a special forum on the UPK legislation and the activities of the UPKNYC coalition, has been re-scheduled for Tuesday Feb. 18th. Our guest will be Josh Gold, the political director of UPKNYC, who will talk to us about what is going on in Albany and how we can help make Mayor De Blasio's vision of free Universal Pre-K for all of our city's children a reality.
Join us at Bunga's Den, 137 W. 14th St (near 7th Avenue)
Tuesday at 7 p.m.
