Recognizing that in a multi-cultural democratic society bridges and coalitions must be built between our various communities, and to promote the influence of each citizen regardless of race, religion, color, age, gender or sexual orientation, we associate ourselves together creating the Capital Area Progressive Democrats.   -  CAPD Bylaws, Article II

The primary purpose of the Capital Area Progressive Democrats shall be to endorse and actively support the election of those Democratic candidates, issues or propositions on the voting ballot which further the ideals of this organization.

To all good CAPD’ers working on issues of justice:  Thank you for your hard work. Thank you for stepping out and becoming candidates.  Thank you for showing up, speaking out. Thank you for your gifts of time, talent, and money to the progressive causes that speak to your heart and conscience, whether they be in Austin, Travis County, Texas or our great country.

Stay strong and stay united.
