WHAT WE DO

Community Free Democrats put our progressive values into action by endorsing and campaigning for candidates for elected office whom we believe will best embody and advance the core tenets of our beliefs.

We also shine a spotlight on the issues of the day, using our monthly meetings to hear from experts and activists on the front lines of the challenges we face as a City, State and nation. 

CFD mobilizes for protests, lobbying efforts, outreach and other events to show support for our causes and for individuals and groups who are caught up in injustice and oppression here on the Upper West Side, throughout our City, and beyond.  We use our strength in numbers and our words and actions to influence decision-makers and to comfort and reassure those who bear the brunt of decisions and programs that fail to embody our values.

TAKING ACTION

Connecting

with like minded activists on the Upper Westside and the rest of Manhattan.

Advocating

“We have a humanitarian crisis on our hands at Rikers that is hurting both inmates and corrections officers, and we have an obligation as a city to confront suffering and violence in our jails.”

– Scott Stringer, City Comptroller, Former CFD member
