About the New Dems
Founded in 1997, the New Democrat Coalition is dedicated to maintaining America's standing as the world's strongest, most successful nation. Over the nineteen-year history of the Coalition, the group has grown in influence and size, currently covering over one-fourth of the House Democratic Caucus.
