Hillsborough County Democratic Party
Today’s Democratic Party is the party of Presidents Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and Barack Obama. Americans from all walks of life believe in the values shared by our great Democratic leaders – past, present and future. Our party stands for the core principles of justice, fairness and opportunity such that all Americans have the right to their American Dream: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Our Party leads the fight for civil rights, voting rights, health care, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, workers’ rights, women’s rights, LGBTA rights, equal pay for equal work, job creation and the middle class. We continue to fight for and protect these and other great achievements currently under assault.
We believe in:
- Raising the minimum wage
- Health care for all
- Affordable college education
- Immigration reform with a path to citizenship
- A woman’s right to choose and make her own health care decisions
- Keeping jobs in America
- Ending institutional racism in our county
- Expanding the middle class
The Democratic Party believes there is a time, place and need for good but not excessive government. Our policies give every American a fair shot at the American Dream. We do not stand for policies that only work for the 1% but instead we advocate policies that work for all Americans regardless of race, color, ethnicity, sexual identity, gender, religion, educational level or income bracket. We are truly THE BIG TENT party and champions of the middle class.
