Founded in late 2012 by Omar and Rafael Rivero, Occupy Democrats is a political organization and news website that provided an online counterbalance to the Republican “Tea Party.” Since then, it has grown into the largest and most active community of Democratic voters in the world and has spearheaded the resistance to President Trump and his radical supporters.
The Occupy Movement changed the national conversation around the issue of class and inequality, but unlike the Tea Party, it unfortunately failed to achieve major legislative victories. Inspired by the Occupy Movement’s revolutionary energy and ideals, we aim to create a more equal society for ALL by working with progressives, labor unions, and the Democratic Party to beat back the wealthy oligarchs and their servants in Congress.
Our mission is to Occupy Democrats on November 2020 AND BEYOND by voting in a LANDSLIDE of progressive Democratic candidates dedicated to rolling back President Trump’s extremist agenda and making Congress work for Main Street instead of Wall Street. We’re going to do that by advancing a bold progressive agenda, including Medicare-for-All, free public college tuition, and a $15 federal minimum wage for hard-working Americans.
While Trump’s MAGA cronies have nearly the entire Republican caucus in Congress ruthlessly pursuing their extreme agenda, Occupy Democrats is an ever-growing MOVEMENT dedicated to changing that! Let’s give the Trump and the GOP the boot — for good! — by electing a slate of newly-energized progressives to Congress.
Working through the democratic process, We The People will rise up to give President elect a Congress that will work to fix the economy, create jobs, promote fairness, fight racism, protect a woman’s right to choose, and get money OUT of politics!
WE ADVOCATE WORKING WITH DEMOCRATS, NOT THIRD PARTIES, TO FIGHT SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC INEQUALITY AND INJUSTICE.
Thank you for being a part of Occupy Democrats.
