We're Your Neighbors

D15 Dems is your local Democratic Party organization, run entirely by volunteers who live in our district.

Building a better Arizona starts in your neighborhood.


We are the teachers in your neighborhood schools. The mechanic around the corner. The checkout clerk at your favorite ice cream shop. That really helpful lady that you look for at the bank. We're community members just like you, working together to make our community and our state better.


When we organize, every child can get a quality education that prepares them for the future. When we vote, every person who works can afford to put nutritious food on the table. When we work together, every life is treated with care and respect. When we get to know our neighbors, we are all safer. 

It's the people who right here in our community who hold the keys to making our country, our state, and our neighborhoods stronger. That's you, and that's us. We know what our families need, just like you do: wages that keep up with inflation, community schools where every student can thrive, quality healthcare that doesn't bankrupt families, and clean water.


Join us because it all starts in your neighborhood.

Community is more than belonging. It's about doing something together that makes belonging matter.
