The Sonoma County Democratic Party

Change

We’re working at the local level for policies that benefit all members of our community. We believe health care is a right, not a privilege. We believe in a living wage and free public education. We believe that our children should breathe clean air and drink clean water and be safe from gun violence.

Principles

We support principles fundamental to our democracy…  a free press, an independent judiciary, and fair elections. We put people above profits. We believe in a common good, and an open and transparent government.

Civic Engagement

We believe in listening to people who disagree with us. We will show up, speak, vote, and run to protect our values and our democracy. And, we will not be deterred. Because that is what our country needs and how it was founded.
