I’m Back!!! – A Message from Jim Hightower


I’m proud to say that, for over 30 years, I’ve been involved with an extraordinary progressive organization – 21st Century Democrats. During that time this wonderful people’s organization has done much to advance a more egalitarian political platform, including:

  • Endorsing 351 progressive candidates from 41 states
  • Training over 650 grassroots organizers
  • And running Get-Out-the-Vote programs in 32 states.

Groups like 21st Century Democrats can only do this good, hard, grassroots work with help from folks like you. Contributions small and large help them do the Democracy-growing work that we need done.

Please Support 21st Century Democrats Today


In our current divisive political climate, with Donald Trump as President and rabid Koch funded Tea party operatives are chomping at the bit to turn back all the progress we’ve made over the past 8 years at every level of government– 21st Century Democrats pushes back, battling the bastards at the grassroots. They are working tirelessly and they need our help.
