Who We Are
For more than 200 years, Democrats have fought for the interests of working families and equal opportunities for all Americans. We believe in an America where we don’t just look out for ourselves. We’re proud of our individualism, but we also know that we rise and fall as one nation. Throughout history, Democrats have worked from the ground up to bring about the change that matters.
Throughout our history, Tennessee Democrats have fought to make the changes that matter most to Tennesseans. Today, a new generation of leaders continues our proud tradition.
Your County Party
From Mountain City to Memphis, Democrats are working in neighborhoods across our state to build local organizations from the ground up. Grassroots Democrats in every county help with electoral efforts, voter registration, candidate recruitment, volunteer recruitment and training.
The Tennessee Democratic Party has a long and storied history—producing some of the most well known figures in Democratic politics. President Andrew Jackson, “Old Hickory,” is often considered the founder of the modern Democratic Party.
