Don Newton Community Center
Business Meeting 6 PM
Dinner 6:15 PM
To empower the more than 63,000 registered Democrats living on the West Side of Bernalillo County.
Serving The Community…
We encourage and support candidates who are people-oriented and will work for the good of everyone in our community. We believe in a government that is truly “of the people, by the people, and for the people”…not just for corporations, Wall Street, or the rich.
United By A Common Goal…
Social justice and human rights are more important than corporate profits.
We seek to improve the quality of life for all of our residents through grass-roots support of candidates who listen and work to implement liberal programs and legislation.
Your candidates can’t win without your help.
Canvassing, phone banking, word-of-mouth, volunteering, and donating are all ways to work together to achieve our common goals.
Our Democratic Core Values
Excerpts from the Platform of the Democratic Party of New Mexico
Democrats believe that an educated populace is the cornerstone of sustainable democracy, and the single most important driver of economic prosperity. Affordable, high-quality pre-K through college education is a basic right that is protected by New Mexico’s dedicated, high-quality educators. We believe that it is the responsibility of the government to ensure that the public education system prepares all to participate meaningfully in society.
Healthcare is a fundamental human right. Regardless of their circumstance, everyone in New Mexico and the U.S. should have access to comprehensive, affordable, high-quality health care in conjunction with comprehensive behavioral health services, and reproductive care, including access to birth control, quality prenatal and postpartum care, and abortion care.
