African American Caucus
The Arizona African American Caucus (AAC) seeks to encourage political participation and education within the African American community and encourage African Americans to seek public office at all levels. We also fight for equality for African Americans by advocating for issues such as educational, economic, criminal, healthcare and immigration justice and ensuring voting rights and protection for all.
The goals of the AAC in order of importance are to:
- Increase the number of Precinct Committee Persons (PC)
- Increase the number of registered African Americans
- “Get out the vote efforts” (“GOTV”)

The LGBT Caucus is a branch of the Arizona Democratic Party that works to ensure that all Arizonans are treated equally and fairly. The Caucus focuses on issues that affect the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, but in doing so, also fights for the equal rights of all. By electing members of the LGBT community and endorsing legislation that helps to prevent discrimination against members of this community, the LGBT Caucus helps make the state of Arizona more fair and equal, and therefore a better place in which to live in.
Help the LGBT Caucus Stand Up Against:
- DOMA & Constitutional Amendment- In addition to having legal statutes in the state’s Defense of Marriage Act voiding same-sex marriages. In November 2008, Arizona passed Proposition 102, and created a constitutional amendment to the Arizona State Constitution defining marriage as between a man and woman, limiting committed same-sex couples from the benefits that can come from such a union. Help us encourage lawmakers and fellow Arizonans to repeal this unfair amendment!
