Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) describes itself as "the nation's most experienced organization committed to liberal politics, liberal policies, and a liberal future." [1]

"In the spirit of the New Deal and ADA founders Eleanor Roosevelt, renowned economist John Kenneth Galbraith, and former Senator and Vice President Hubert Humphrey we lobby through coalition partnerships, through direct advocacy, and through the media. Our lobbying philosophy is based on democratic action - motivating our grassroots members to lobby their Senators and Representatives as constituent-advocates." [1] Another co-founder was Joseph L. Rauh, Jr.[citation needed]
