The Declaration for American Democracy is coalition of over 145 organizations that have aligned to demand a democracy:

  • That serves the people rather than the private interests of public officials and wealthy political donors
  • In which voting is a fundamental right and a civic responsibility
  • In which our influence is based on the force of ideas, not the size of our wallets
  • In which people know who is trying to gain influence over our representatives, who is trying to influence our votes, and how and why policy is being made
  • That works to respond to the needs of all people and their communities, building trust in governance and equity
  • That protects the rule of law and preserves the system of checks and balances that are the basis of our constitution

Take Action

It’s been nearly one year since the House passed the For the People Act, H.R. 1, a historic set of sweeping reforms that would transform our Democracy through stopping big money in politics, protecting every voter’s right to be heard, demanding ethical and accountable government, and ending gerrymandering.

Here’s how you can help get this bill signed into law.
