Ethnic Americans

Share This

Reflecting the diverse fabric of our country, the Democratic Party is comprised of many individuals, families, and communities that have at their core the story of American immigration. President Obama is working tirelessly to provide meaningful leadership on the wide range of issues that are important to all Americans. The DNC’s Office of Ethnic Outreach works together with the DNC’s Ethnic Council to engage voters in every state by advancing the President’s message on these issues in households and communities across the country.

The Office of Ethnic Outreach works closely with state parties and elected officials to reach a broad spectrum of Americans. We are currently facilitating meaningful conversations about issues ranging from the American Jobs Act to immigration among many others in states across the country. Email for more information on how you can join the conversation.
