For those who give a damn
about democracy.

The traditional values of American democracy are under siege by those who would rather place personal interest and gains ahead of the good of the republic.

The Democracy Pledge creates a shared standard in which each one of us, our neighbors and our leaders can use as a guide for engaging in every day citizenship.

Take the Democracy Pledge

I believe democracy is worth fighting for so I will:

We all have a responsibility to be engaged in our democracy. We need to do more than just get out the vote. We need to supercharge what it means to be a citizen: from simply participating in smarter conversations about important issues with friends and family members, to actively fighting for pro-democratic initiatives.
