Mission: Fighting for equality, fairness, and justice in Henry County by protecting the vote of our citizens, electing dedicated, honest public officials with a proven record of transparency and integrity, and encouraging all people to hold government accountable. 

Democrats are fighting for long-term economic growth that helps everyone, not just the top one percent. We are working to save jobs, create new jobs with livable wages and new opportunities for small businesses. We want to reinvest in our schools, close the educational achievement gap, and make college affordable, if not free. Expanding opportunities for all Americans.

We are fighting against environmental injustices that have allowed low-income children to be exposed to lead We are fighting voting restrictions as Republican legislatures around the country enact laws to keep minority voices away from the ballot box. We as a people have a lot to fight for… so come join the Henry County Democrats making differences in every one’s life.
