Directly from the Democrats Official Website:

For too many though, this ideal is still far from a reality. Democrats are committed to:

Strengthening the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division to better protect voting rights;

Enacting the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which includes measures prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity;

Repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in a sensible way that strengthens our armed forces and our national security;

Ensuring civil unions and equal federal rights for LGBT couples, as well as fully repealing the Defense of Marriage Act;   They approve and support and will protect Same-Sex marriages

Ending racial, ethnic, and religious profiling; and

Building a fair and more equitable criminal justice system that provides non-violent offenders a second chance at a rehabilitated life.
