Who We Are:
As Democrats, we believe that we're greater together than we are on our own—that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. Our party is focused on building an economy that lifts up all Americans, not just those at the top. That's why Democrats are working to make progress on issues like job creation, equal pay, education, health care, and clean energy.
What We Do:
In the heart of the Flint Hills region of Kansas, Riley County is a strong, supportive community full of future-focused progressives. In the face of diverse needs and challenges, members of our community are committed to one another and to the idea of fairness and opportunity for all. Time after time, we have reaffirmed this commitment by banding together to fight for our local school district, our infrastructure, our military population, our university and technical school, and those in our community who are most vulnerable.
The Riley County Democratic Party has been a key driver of progressive causes in the community. We are a growing organization made up of individuals from all walks of life who have a passion for involving our friends and neighbors in the political process. We have a proud track record of electing smart, caring progressives to state and local leadership.
Volunteers and contributors are the lifeblood of our organization. During election years, we organize a thriving headquarters operation to help reach and mobilize voters across Riley County. We also host monthly events and meetings to help us stay connected and informed on issues that affect the city of Manhattan, Riley County, the state of Kansas, and our country.
