Our Values

We believe Framingham deserves a Democratic Committee who represents Framingham. A Democratic Committee who is engaged with the issues, activities and the residents of our city. A Democratic Committee open and welcoming to all. One with members ready to take action for a more equitable, progressive Framingham. 

Equality and social and economic justice are the foundations of our platform for positive progressive action. 

We celebrate the excellent field and diversity of voices of the Democratic Party in Framingham, Massachusetts and across the nation. We believe in amplifying the voices of those who rendered silent for far too long. We believe in a Framingham that is welcoming to all. Our youth. Our seniors. And every age in between. 

We are dedicated to defeating Donald Trump and his corrupt cronies to ensure that his unconstitutional, corrupt, divisive and cruel policies do not return. These morally bankrupt policies have marginalized and hurt our BIPOC, immigrant, LGBTQIA+ neighbors. We are firm in our anti-racism beliefs. We are dedicated to action to overturn the reactionary and undemocratic decisions of the Supreme Court. 

We believe in a woman’s right to choose and her bodily autonomy. Decisions made about health care belong in the doctor’s office, not in the halls of government. 

We believe that every American has the right to quality affordable health care. As a mental health crisis continues, we believe in mental health parity and all health must remain a priority. 

We believe that families and children have the right to high quality and free public education, including early education and afterschool programs. We believe Framingham must push for early education for all of our students. We are opposed to book bans and censorship.

We believe in gender equality in all aspects of our basic human rights, including civil rights, employment, pay, housing, education and health care. All people deserve good paying jobs. We support unions. 

We stand for LGBTQIA+ rights. 

We believe that every person has the right to clean air and water. We must institute practices that reduce carbon emissions, preserve and protect our natural resources and work to reverse global warming. That in Framingham the efforts to clean our environmental justice neighborhoods are urgent and cannot go ignored. 

We believe that every person, regardless of background, has the right to feel safe and protected at home, at school and in our neighborhoods and public ways. We believe in advancing public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence, especially our kids in their schools and community. 

We believe in expanding affordable housing opportunities in a state with a housing crisis. Variety in housing stock and affordability in every community allows that community to thrive. 

This is not simply a wish list. This is our statement of values and our blueprint for action and positive change here in Framingham and around the country.

Framingham Democrats, you deserve a local democratic committee committed to this progressive agenda.  Voting for Group 2 on or before Tuesday, March 5 is the first step in bringing much needed attitude adjustment and change to Framingham. You have our commitment we will work tirelessly on your behalf.
