|Messengers of Democracy|
"Nobody grows old by
merely living a number of years. People grow old only by deserting
their ideals. Years wrinkle the face, but to give up enthusiasm
wrinkles the soul. Worry, doubt, self-interest, fear, despair —
these are the long, long years that bow the head and turn the
growing spirit back to dust."
Who We Are...Past Meets Present
The New Deal, the space program, civil rights, equal pay, the United Nations, democratic government by, for and of the People and strength through community — these are some of our greatest progressive contributions to America. Understand who Progressives are and what we stand for by exploring our shared American history. Find inspiration and stories from some of our greatest democratic messengers pictured below. Guided by our values and inspired by our vision, we create forward-thinking programs that lift Americans to greater heights of respect, security and prosperity.
We are determined to protect the American Dream for every
American at every stage of life, from childhood through old age,
with programs and policies that represent effective, accountable
and responsible government. When you think of Progressive Democrats,

We represent government that provides what Americans need to
live better now, look toward a better future and to fulfill the promise that "All Men
and Women are Created Equal".
