Democrats reclaiming democracy to ensure a brighter future for America.
C Street Democrats: Democrats Reclaiming Democracy!
We are a group of activists who believe political parties are a key institution of a democracy. We seek to strengthen the Democratic party and the democratic values America has established and fought for. Like many Americans, we are alarmed at the terrifying irresponsibility of President Trump’s actions and authoritarian direction of his administration. We cannot be passive in the face of such a substantial threat to our country and, indeed, our Earth. Our top priority is to be useful to our followers in broadly based political action, including commentary and analyses of the crucial issues and campaigns and upcoming events where our readers can get involved. It is in all of our interests to elect men and women who will take the job of governing seriously and who articulate meaningful goals for all Americans. If we are to be successful, it will take all of us working together to reestablish an America dedicated to achieving its civic ideals: to have the best public school system, the best health care, the best public transportation, the safest air, the safest water and the strongest protection of human rights. We welcome your comments and ideas.
We will be providing regular updates on events and action opportunities.
