Stand with us.
As the media quickly moves on to new breaking stories, we must not allow President Trump’s staggering equivocation in the face of the hate and violence of racism, white supremacy, and neo-nazism to fade into the next news cycle.
Now more than ever, we must hold the administration and the GOP accountable. Monterey County Democrats reject all forms of hate from sexism, anti-semitism, and homophobia to Islamophobia, xenophobia, anti-immigrant policies, and racism. We stand for the rights of ALL people.
In the wake of the violent protests in Charlottesville that resulted in the death of protester Heather Heyer we must continue to speak out. We must stand on the right side of history. In the words of Mayor Mitch Landrieu of New Orleans, “The Confederacy was on the wrong side of history and humanity. It sought to tear apart our nation and subjugate our fellow Americans to slavery. This is the history we should never forget and one that we should never again put on a pedestal to be revered.”
We hope you will commit to fighting with us now. We hope you will continue to stand with us through the 2018 midterm election and beyond. Our nation needs leaders who respect and represent all Americans. Our nation needs leaders who embrace the beautiful diversity of our people. Our nation needs leaders who fight for the equity and opportunity that make America great.
We Democrats embrace the values of diversity and equity. We are fighting for a better nation that lives up to its highest ideals. If you share our values, get involved with the local Democratic party and join one of the many local groups fighting racism and working to secure justice for all in our community.

Democrats believe in people: poor and wealthy, old and young, woman and man, immigrant and American born.
We believe that this is America’s strength: that different people unite, working together for the good of each and for the good of all.
We believe that government’s role is to protect the people, and ensure justice, freedom and equal opportunity.
And we believe that by standing firm on these values, California and America can reclaim our vision as a land of optimism and unity.
We are the party of unity and equity. Join us. Make your own Democratic space.
