ABOUT THE JEFFCO DEMOCRATS
WE’VE FOUGHT HARD TO GET WHERE WE ARE TODAY. BUT WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED.
WHO ARE WE?
WHAT DO WE STAND FOR?
In America, government is a contract with the people. The people of Colorado and their way of life are the focus of the Colorado Democratic Party Platform. They are the heartbeat of our democracy.
We strive to empower people, by building on trust and transparency, by amplifying our collective voices, by protecting the foundations of democracy and freedom.
We seek to lift people up, to protect them from threats new and old, to establish equal and fair access to the Colorado way of life.
We speak up to protect the rights of all people.
WHAT ARE OUR VALUES?
Empathy, Caring and Respect
Individual and Social Responsibility
Equality and Fairness
Service and Community Building
Trust, Honesty, and Open Communication
Courage and Strength
Innovation and Excellence
WHERE ARE WE HEADING?
Our party seeks to inform the public of our goals and show evidence that many of them are the same, regardless of political affiliation. We seek to proactively identify issues supported by the majority of Democrats within the state, yet we acknowledge that we have a very diverse state. We honor that diversity across all areas from the smallest county to the most populated metro area. After all, We are all Coloradans and respect our similarities and differences.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Colorado Democrats value empathy, caring for people, and respecting every person’s dignity and rights. We believe that Coloradans have a social responsibility to ensure that every person in our community is treated with equity and fairness under the law regardless of identity or status.
We Democrats will demonstrate our strength by courageously standing up for all Coloradans to fight against the forces of hate which try to divide our communities and exploit us.
