The Adelante Progressive Caucus embraces the values of everyday working people across our state and our country, the values of most Americans , the values that have inspired the work of the Democratic Party for generations. We believe every person deserves to live a life of dignity —with secure, decent-paying jobs; a just economic system; not -for-profit universal healthcare; high quality public schools; and a safe, healthy environment where the resources and beauty of our land are preserved for future generations.
The Adelante Progressive Caucus fully supports the State Platform of the Democratic Party of New Mexico and the policies of the current U.S. Democratic Party Platform, including:
The Adelante Progressive Caucus will work to strengthen the Democratic Party by recruiting more young people, people of of color, LGBTQ people, working-class people, and others who may feel marginalized or forgotten. We will reach out to historically under-represented communities to include their voices in the democratic process. The Adelante Progressive Caucus will work to create transparency and accountability in all functions of our state and national party. We will work to eliminate the influence of big money, whether corporate or individual, from elections and the legislative process. The Adelante Progressive Caucus will promote democracy and strengthen the Democratic Party by building grassroots power to advance policies and candidates that represent the values and interests of ALL the diverse peoples and lands of New Mexico.
