Progressive Democrats of Colorado

The Left Wing of the Possible

We are committed to strengthening and expanding the Colorado Democratic Party by providing a voice for the progressive movement within the Party.

About PDC

Who we are

The vital piece

As the ONLY statewide progressive organization that is actually a part of the Democratic Party, PDC is where progressive advocacy is taken to the ballot and translated into real political power. For every progressive grassroots group in Colorado working on an "inside-outside" strategy to push the Democrats forward, PDC is the one place where it all comes together INSIDE the Democratic Party.

A TEAM of leaders

PDC is led at the state level by an elected, all-volunteer, 9-member Executive Board, which includes a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. The Board includes some of Colorado's leading authorities on the rules and platform of the Democratic Party, leaders of grassroots groups, and dedicated activists who have devoted years to the progressive cause and community.

progressive heritage

PDC became a statewide initiative of the Colorado Democratic Party in August 2005. In 2020, PDC adopted new bylaws, expanded its leadership team, and launched a new era of progressive activism as the Democratic Party home for all the political revolutionaries, democratic socialists, and social justice activists determined to make real change happen in Colorado.
