ADA's HISTORY
 

Americans for Democratic Action, founded in 1947, is an independent liberal political organization dedicated to promoting individual liberty and economic justice, working to advance civil rights at home and human rights abroad, and promoting the general welfare in a world at peace.

Eleanor Roosevelt, Hubert Humphrey, Walter Reuther, Wayne Morse and James Loeb Jr. were among the founders. President Harry S. Truman attended the first Roosevelt Day dinner.

ADA is a multi-issue organization, speaking out and acting on the topics of the day.  These topics have ranged from support for civil liberties during the infamous McCarthy period to active participation in the civil rights movement of the 1960’s and  opposition to the Viet Nam War, and in more recent times to equal rights for women, promotion of fair global trade policies, universal health care, and strengthening social security.    ADA’s ratings of legislative bodies – particularly the US Congress – are well known and highly regarded.
