Our Mission

Since 1985, 21st Century Democrats has recruited and supported progressive populist Democratic candidates. We aren’t afraid to get involved in primaries. We’ve won victories for ordinary Americans at the ballot box time and time again.

We’ve backed more than 400 candidates from 41 states – including 33 current Members of Congress. We’ve trained over 675 grassroots organizers and have run GOTV programs in 35 states.

We’ve helped to elect mayors including Bill de Blasio (NYC), state legislators, county council members, governors such as Steve Bullock (MT), and U.S. Senators including Senator Sherrod Brown (OH), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Kamala Harris (CA), Amy Klobuchar (MN), Elizabeth Warren (MA).
