Local Democrats care about our Local History.

Southampton Democrats believe that all groups, irrespective of race, color, creed, or national origin deserve a seat at the table, a voice in decision making and recognition of their contributions to Southampton Town and America at large:
Southampton Democrats, recognizing past injustices suffered by the Shinnecock Nation passed the Graves Protection Act to protect sacred burial ground and followed up by establishing a committee to assess vital issues impacting the Shinnecocks. A land use moratorium was the first initiative proposed which will be used to identify sacred ground.
In recognition of the rich history of African Americans and their many contributions to the East End, Southampton Town joined with the Southampton African American Museum to save and rehabilitate the Pyrrhus Concer House. By using CPF funds, the Concer house was saved from private development and purchased for historical preservation.
Due to an increase in antisemitic incidents perpetrated against Jewish people, Southampton Town approved a resolution with language spelling out the definition of antisemitism as understood by the International Holocaust Alliance.

Agriculture is continuously fostering the growth and development of Southampton Town. Committed to securing the future for Town residents, Southampton Democrats find creative and environmentally sustainable ways to achieve economic growth from one end of town to the other.

Hampton Bays is a vital hamlet and with community input informing a new vision for a Hamptons Bays Central Business District hamlet, residents can look forward to an economy of their own design.
