Mission Statement of the Democratic Afrosphere

Historically, it was taken for granted that elected officials, including the president and vice president of the United States would necessarily be white men. Now that Blacks and women have won the right to vote and to run for elective office, we are building the organizations necessary to turn these suffrage rights into electoral and political realities that help Black people meet our needs for education, housing, medical care, equality before the law, dignity and freedom.

The mission of the Democratic Afrosphere is to offer a critical Black perspective on national, state, local and international politics while advocating for the election of Democratic leaders who are faithful to these progressive goals of the Democratic Party, including equality, respect, rights and opportunities for immigrants, for Blacks, women, gays, and those who have been historically marginalized in the United States of America based on immutable characteristics.
