A historic coalition of over 160 organizations that have aligned to demand a democracy that serves the people.

Our coalition includes groups from the labor, racial justice, faith, women’s rights, environmental, good government, and many other important communities. Formed in 2018, we set out on a mission to take back our democracy and restore power to the people. We believe that we must build a democracy where everyone participates, every vote is counted, and everyone’s voice is heard.

To: The next U.S. President & Congress
From: [Your Name]

In 2021, the next president will have many important issues to address: from combating climate change and gun violence, to overcoming the coronavirus pandemic and dismantling systemic racism in America. But in order for the next administration to do that effectively, we need to build a stronger and more representative democracy.

Sign the #DemocracyDay1 Petition

Sign your name to demand that the For People Act (H.R. 1) is a first priority of the next administration and Congress — because Day 1 is for Democracy.

Be a part of the #DemocracyOpenMic.

#DemocracyOpenMic is a social media campaign that lets you use your creativity to make your voice heard on the urgent need to protect our vote during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are working together to build 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 wallet
  • 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

Right now, our Democracy is under threat — too many states are failing to offer options for voters to cast their ballot in a safe and accessible way. Join the Declaration for American Democracy and our coalition of 160 member organizations for a series of virtual town halls and find out how you can help protect our vote and defend our democracy.

Our democracy is in crisis — but there is hope.

Each day brings more news of corruption, voter suppression, and shocking lawlessness at the highest levels of our government. Americans are feeling, with good reason, that our democracy is broken. But there is hope for change.

The 2020 Election is Just Months Away








Time is running out to #ProtectOurVote.

The Senate must pass the voting reforms and $3.6B in funding included in the House-passed HEROES Act to protect our nation’s election and democracy. #ProtectOurVote
