Mission Statement

Coastside Progressive Democrats is a local, grassroots democratic movement inspired by and standing in solidarity with movements for justice across the country. We stand for a culture that celebrates diversity and equality. We strive for progressive ideals and we aim to put political knowledge and power back in the hands of ordinary people. We strive to protect people in our local communities who are under attack, as well as our our unique coastal environment. We do not mourn, we organize. We are reasserting our role in democracy. We are all in this together.
