Faith Communities

The Democratic Party brings together people of many different faiths, tied together through shared values and a deep-seated commitment to tolerance, charity, and the well-being of others. Between efforts to combat AIDS in Africa to homelessness in our neighborhoods, faith can be a powerful bond that compels us to serve our community and unite around a common purpose.

Democrats stand for an open and respectful dialogue about faith in society, embracing people of all faiths. Because many religion-specific values translate into universal values shared across the political spectrum, we believe that an open and earnest discussion about faith can contribute to society in many ways, and can lead to greater tolerance and acceptance—virtues truly befitting America’s promise.
