We Believe…

Democrats believe in people: all ages, all genders, poor or wealthy, immigrant or US American born.

We believe that this is our nation’s strength: that different people can unite, working together for the good of each and for the benefit 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 the United States of America may reclaim our vision as a land of sustainable optimism, prosperity, and unity.
