Honoring our past
Building for our future
North Dakota Democrats believe that we’re greater together than we are on our own—that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share, when everyone plays by the same rules. Our party is focused on building an economy that lasts—an economy that lifts up all Americans. That’s why ND Democrats are working to advance issues like job creation, education, health care, and clean energy.

The Democratic-NPL has roots in the Progressive Era of American history. For more than 200 years, Democrats have represented the interests of working families, fighting for equal opportunities and justice for all Americans. The Nonpartisan League (NPL) was founded in North Dakota and eventually spread throughout the Midwest and Pacific Northwest during the Progressive Era and was briefly organized as a national party. It also spread northward into Canada, running in provincial elections and providing some of the basis for the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation in Saskatchewan and the Progressive Party of Canada.
The Nonpartisan League merged with the Democratic Party of North Dakota in 1956. Our party was founded on the conviction that wealth and privilege shouldn’t be an entitlement to rule and the belief that the values of hardworking families are the values that should guide us. We didn’t become the most prosperous country in the world by rewarding greed and recklessness or by letting those with the most influence write their own rules. We got here by rewarding hard work and responsibility, by investing in people, and by growing our country from the bottom up.
Today Democrats are fighting to repair a decade of damage and grow an economy based on the values of Main Street, not greed and reckless speculation. Democrats are focused on rescuing our economy not just in the short run but also rebuilding our economy for the long run—an economy that lifts up not just some Americans, but all Americans.
