Progressive Democrats of Hawai‘i is an affiliate of the Progressive Democrats of America.

Our mission is to build unity among progressive individuals and advance progressive values in the Democratic Party of Hawai‘i. We work to elect progressive Democrats to office, encourage other progressives to join the Party and become effective within it, and attempt to get more progressive policies and positions adopted in the Party. We support various community groups in their efforts.

Some issues important to us:

Stop the war
Healthcare for all
Accountability for the Bush/Cheney administration
Publicly financed elections
Economic justice
Sustainable Environmental Policies


“Inside/Outside” Strategy
Working within the general Democratic Party framework while helping provide a voice for like-minded groups and individuals outside of the Party.Inside:
In order to be effective within the party, we need a portion of our members to also be members of the Democratic Party of Hawai‘i and to hold positions within the Party. The “4 Easy Steps” document explains how to gain a position within the Party. Essentially, we encourage progressives to participate in precinct meetings and get elected to delegate positions for the County and/or State Democratic conventions so that they can help get progressive resolutions adopted by the Party.

Outside:
Work with other groups and individuals who are not affiliated with the Democratic Party. If you would like to work with us or have an issue that you think we would be interested in, please contact us.
