Democratic Underground is an online community for U.S. Democrats hosting an active liberal discussion board on the internet. It allows politically liberal people to do their part to effect political and social change by interacting with friendly, like-minded people; sharing news and information, free from the corporate media filter; participating in lively, thought-provoking discussions; and helping elect more Democrats to political office at all levels of American government.
Democratic Underground is an independent website funded by member subscriptions and advertising, and it has no affiliation with the Democratic Party. It is a grassroots community where regular members drive the discussion and set the standards.
Democratic Underground was launched in 2001 and is based in Kensington, M.D.
