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.

Without any debate or input, the Michigan State Legislature is poised to vote on December 11th to make Michigan another Right To Work state. Governor Rick Snyder has stated that when this law passes he would sign it. It is an outrage that citizens have not been allowed to have their voices heard in this matter and a law that will affect the lives of every working Michigan citizen is being rammed down their throats. DFNYC stands with the citizens of Michigan in their fight to prevent this law from being enacted.
