KAD welcomes new members, and we encourage you to join our club! Because we have no brick and mortar presence, our operating costs are extremely low. Money that we take in via dues and fundraisers is earmarked for voter education and outreach or is given directly to KAD-endorsed state and local Democratic candidates.
We are now taking membership dues and donations through ActBlue.
We will no longer be taking payments through Paypal or Action Network, so please be sure to update your method of payment.
$0 College/HS student
Students, if you want to join KAD, please send us an email with your contact information. Membership is free!
Annual dues run from January 1 through December 31, but you may join at any time.
Any purchase through the KAD store will give you membership until the end of 2020.
"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.
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.
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.
