Policy and Our Platform

New Kings Democrats is a progressive, grassroots political organization committed to bringing transparency, accountability, and inclusionary democracy to the Kings County Democratic Party and the elected officials of our borough. To those ends, we strive as a group to prioritize issues and build policy platforms that shape the conversation around local progressive politics. 

NKD’s Policy Committee is responsible for directing NKD's policy efforts with regards to County Committee and public policy more broadly. The Committee develops platforms that reflect the club’s policy priorities and positions and informs the club’s organizing work.

These issues are identified and thoroughly researched by our Policy Committee, and brought to our general membership for discussion, revision, and approval.
