New Queens Democrats is a progressive, grassroots organization advocating for transparency, inclusionary democracy, and accountability within the Queens Democratic Party. NQD serves as an encouraging environment for those looking to become more engaged. NQD hopes to foster a new generation of elected Queens Democratic leaders.
Founded by veterans of the Bernie Sanders campaign along with local community activists, NQD hopes to connect Democrats from all over Queens to transform local politics. NQD also facilitates opportunities for organizations across Queens to empower and actualize their hopes.
In December 2016, NQD became a chapter affiliate of the New York Progressive Action Network (NYPN), the statewide progressive organization. NQD is one of 25 chapters in NY that are part of NYPAN.
