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.

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.
