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.
A fiscally-responsible, moderate bloc of lawmakers dedicated to policies that foster American success, the New Democrat Coalition is a vehicle for the millions of Americans who feel unrepresented in today's broken political process.
