We are Democrats because we believe in social justice and equal rights. We believe it should not matter who you are, what you look like, or what neighborhood you grew up in; every person deserves an equal opportunity at success. Every child has the right to quality education, and access to quality healthcare should not be determined by the size of your bank account. If you believe in these ideals, we hope you will join us to build the Democratic Party in Elkhart County.
