Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Democracy for America is a progressive, people-powered political action committee, headquartered in Burlington, Vermont. Founded by former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean in 2004, DFA leads public awareness campaigns on a variety of public policy issues, trains activists and provides funding directly to candidates for office. The organization claims more than 1 million members in the United States and internationally. Dean created the PAC Fund for a Healthy America in 2001 in Montpelier in advance of a planned campaign for President. In March 2004 the organization was renamed Democracy for America. Following his unsuccessful run for the Democratic nomination in the 2004 presidential election, Dean used the organization to build on the grassroots momentum for Democratic candidates around the country. DFA used the Internet-based, grassroots organizing that Dean had created for his presidential campaign to help like-minded Democrats get elected. In 2004 the organization endorsed and supported Democrats on the federal, state and county levels. In 2005, Dean turned over control of the organization to his brother, Jim Dean when he became DNC Chair.show more
