Arab American Caucus of the California Democratic Party


Business and Economy

California Democrats are dedicated to a robust economy and business climate that creates jobs and economic opportunity for all and the tax base for the programs and policies we champion.

Civil Rights

California works aggressively to protect individuals from discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, religion, age, marital status, sexual orientation or disability. California’s Civil Rights Enforcement Section works with the public, state, federal and local government agencies, and with civil rights and community groups to identify civil rights issues and goes to great lengths to educate the public about civil rights laws. Under the United States Constitution, especially the Bill of Rights, our civil liberties as Americans are protected. These fundamental freedoms remain the foundation on what our democracy was built on. A violation of any individual’s civil rights or personal liberties is a test to our country’s democratic values. It is our duty as Americans to protect our civil liberties and to ensure that the legal rights of all Americans are protected regardless of their racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.


California’s children must have access to a free, individually appropriate, high-quality public education from preschool through grade 12. Education must provide a well-rounded curriculum including the arts, music and physical education. Teachers as the stewards of our future, should be well paid and work in safe learning environments with up-to-date equipment and learning tools.

Health Care 

California Democrats believe that health care is a right not a privilege. The CDP recognizes the health and well-being of Californians cannot continue to be based on arbitrary private and public financial decisions and therefore advocates legislation to create and implement a publicly funded (single-payer), privately delivered, fiscally tractable, affordable, comprehensive, secure, high-quality, efficient, and sustainable health care for all Californians.


As the most diverse state in the nation, California’s vibrant diversity reflects the foundation of America’s strength. It emphasizes the fundamental principles of inclusion and national unity that respect the rules of law and human dignity.  California Democrats believe that the American immigration system should be inclusive, fair, and just. Immigration must be consistent with American values of freedom, opportunity, compassion, and respect for human rights.
