About Us

Democracy for Monroe County (DFMC) is a grassroots political action committee dedicated to supporting progressive policies at the local and state levels, and candidates who support those policies. DFMC is part of a nationwide coalition of grassroots groups allied with Democracy for America. We meet every first Thursday of the month.


DFMC is dedicated to:

  • instilling into politics a progressive influence based on true American values of equal opportunity and justice for all;
  • acting in alliance with other progressive groups in order to promote policies that will bring us a strong community, broad prosperity, effective government, free and public education, universal health care, and a better future;
  • challenging any candidate or elected official who fails to move our community toward the goals outlined above; and
  • finding socially and economically progressive candidates among ordinary citizens who have been empowered through education, training, and political action to participate more in our government at all levels
