We Believe…

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.
