Our Mission

Founded in conjunction with the New York Progressive Action Network (NYPAN) by activists inspired by the 2016 presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders, New Queens Democrats (NQD) is a volunteer-run organization comprised of activists residing within Queens, New York that fights for public policies and a political culture that put people and communities first.

  • To support candidates for public office and for Democratic Party positions who embrace NQD’s values of democracy, transparency, equity, accountability, and justice

  • To increase civic and political engagement among the people of Queens, including by increasing transparency and participation in the Queens County Democratic Party
