"Democrats believe health care is a right, diversity is a strength, the economy should work for everyone, and facts and truth matter."

The Democratic Party writes and adopts a new party platform at each Democratic National Convention to detail our shared Democratic values and policy priorities. The 2020 Party Platform is ready.

Representative Democracy

Texas Democrats believe government exists to achieve together what we cannot achieve as individuals and that government must serve all people. A representative democracy is only truly representative if every single citizen is guaranteed the inalienable right to vote in fair and open elections.

Equality and Freedom

Texas Democrats believe in equal opportunity and freedom for all human beings – no matter a person’s race, disability, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic situation, or immigration status.

Smart Government 

Texas Democrats believe our economy must benefit all Texans; that robust public and higher education opportunities are critical for our future; and that the criminal justice system should treat all people fairly.

A Healthy Texas

Texas Democrats believe healthcare is a right; that women’s rights are human rights; that we owe future generations a clean and healthy planet; and that a strong social safety net creates opportunity for all Americans.
