Meet Tom

Tom Perez is a proven leader who has spent his life standing up for progressive values and making real change happen at the local, statewide, and national levels. From putting himself through college on the back of a garbage truck to rebuilding the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, Tom has never shied away from a challenge. 


Your Vision

I believe our party needs a chair with the leadership and management experience to fight for the progressive values that will take us forward. I have a vision for how we’re going to do that, but I don’t pretend to know all the answers -- and good leaders listen more than they talk. 

What’s the first thing you’d do to strengthen the Democratic Party?
