What Is At Stake?

Our Choice is either a democracy that is increasingly equitable and healthy or an oligarchy that embraces the values of the Dark Ages .

The Democratic Party is fighting for cleaner, sustainable environment, universal healthcare, economic justice, quality education for all, worker empowerment, greater safety from gun violence, compassionate and comprehensive immigration policy, freedom of health choices, and benefits for the public good.

The Trump-captured GOP will try to implement Project 2025, a plan created by a powerful, ultra-Conservative, billionaire-led coterie.   For starters, Project 2025 actions would result in loss of our democracy, increased income inequality, a nationwide ban on abortion, further erosion of human rights including marriage equality, more mass shootings, and accelerated rate of destruction of our environment.  You can see a more detailed summary of Project 2025 HERE.
