People ask why I'm a New Democrat and I'll tell you why.
From my experience, it's the only movement that has always amplified the voices of those that desperately needed to be heard, even if what they were saying wasn't "cool" or popular. The voices of the poor, people of different abilities, people of every ethnicity and any age, those voices have always been echoed by New Democrats without an ask for anything in return.
New Democrats put all people first, not their friends, colleagues or bankrollers. New Democrats don't crave power and control, we crave social justice and equality for all.
Doing the right thing for people is extremely important to me, and that's why I'm a proud New Democrat.
