Ulster People for Justice & Democracy is a volunteer group of Ulster County residents, unaffiliated with any political party and entirely member-run. We believe a just, prosperous and sustainable future for our community is possible when we engage in the political process and hold our elected officials accountable. Together we can take on the big corporations and wealthy elite to demand a government that represents the people; an economy that works for all of us instead of just a few; and a society where all people are treated fairly, and live with dignity and freedom.
We advocate for our platform — and candidates who commit to supporting it — at the county, state, and federal level. We study and share how government at all levels is working for us (or against us), engage with our elected officials directly on the issues that matter to us, and help get people elected to public office who share our vision and will fight for economic, social, environmental, and racial justice for all.
