Welcome to the Colorado Democratic Party! Democrats in Colorado are about empowering people and protecting the planet. We understand that the quality of life for people can be directly related to the ability to find a good job, the ability to access healthcare, afford housing and get a good education, without a lifetime of debt. We believe that after a lifetime of hard work, people deserve to retire with dignity and security. We believe that small, local businesses drive Colorado’s economy. We do not believe that corporations are people and are willing to make sure that the wealthy big corporations have to live by the same rules as you and I do. We believe in equality for all races and religions, and that consenting adults should have the freedom to love and marry whomever they chose. We love Colorado as much as you do.
We welcome your input, questions, suggestions and feedback and look forward to partnering with you to help fight for the people, freedoms and values that we hold dear. We believe all power ultimately derives from the people. Our representative democracy works best when people participate. This is your time to help shape the future of our state and our country. You will find tips and tools throughout this website designed to help get you information, events, and action items you may need to be the change you want to see in this world.
