A Letter from Leadership

Updated: Apr 27

Hello Denver Democrats!


The Democratic Party has always been a big tent party. From the progressive left, which believes in universal health care, a jobs guarantee and paid time off, to the centrist, who wants market-based solutions with a social safety net, we have always had a wide variety of views in the Party. However, it is possible for the tent to get too big. When one espouses anti-trans or anti-gay views, they are promoting language that is inappropriate and inconsistent with the values of the Democratic Party.


Our party has always looked after the marginalized and the less well-off, whether it's fighting for affirmative action, reproductive rights or trans rights. We remain committed to advocacy and support because, echoing the words of a former Secretary of State/Senator/First Lady/Nominee for President, trans rights are human rights.  


The Democratic Party is the party for all, and we will continue to be so. One is free to have whatever views they want to; however, the Democratic Party does not accommodate those who espouse anti-trans, anti-gay or racist perspectives. We firmly stand against all forms of hate and discrimination, actively promoting inclusivity and equality. Our commitment is to foster a welcoming environment, where every individual is respected and valued, regardless of their background or identity. This stance is integral to our core values and mission, as we strive to build a more just and equitable society.



In Democratic Unity,


Abe Kaul

Secretary

Democratic Party of Denver
