The Chinese Peasants' and Workers' Democratic Party (Chinese: 中国农工民主党; Pinyin: Zhōngguó Nónggōng Mínzhǔdǎng) is one of the eight non-communist, legally recognised political parties in the People's Republic of China that follow the direction of the Communist Party of China and is a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. The current chairman is former Minister of Health Chen Zhu.

The party had its origins in the collapse of the democratic centralism like both the Nationalists and Communists. Deng was secretly executed by Chiang Kai-shek in 1931 and the party went underground. In 1933, the party, now led by Huang Qixiang, joined with the short-lived "Productive People's Party" in starting the failed People's Revolutionary Government of the Republic of China. In 1935, they renamed themselves in to the "Chinese Action Committee for National Liberation". It was one of the founding parties of the China Democratic League. Its leaders renamed the party in February 1947 to its current name. Currently it comprises a membership of 65,000, most of whom work in the fields of public health, culture and education, science and technology.
