Our Mission

The mission of the American River Democrats is to promote the election of more Democrats who will represent the communities of northeastern Sacramento county through which the American River flows such as Folsom, Gold River, Orangevale and Rancho Cordova.

We will achieve this mission by:

  • Educating our communities about the values, guiding principles and political positions of the Democratic Party
  • Supporting candidates and elected officials who embrace the Democratic Party agenda
  • Supporting initiatives and ballot measures that represent the principles and values of the Democratic Party
  • Developing our members’ capabilities in voter contact and issue advocacy
  • Conducting the business of our club in an open, inclusive, and democratic manner
