Click here to sign the Democracy Awakening petition to tell Congress to act now to strengthen our democracy.
The following petition will be delivered to congressional leadership by a huge mobilization of nonviolent people who've had enough of seeing democracy reduced to a charade:
It’s time to awaken a democracy that is accessible to all and is not beholden to big-money interests. We call on you to support these pieces of legislation:
The Voting Rights Advancement Act, which would restore and increase protections against voting discrimination.
The Voter Empowerment Act, which would modernize voter registration and ensure equal access to voting for all.
The Democracy For All Amendment, which would overturn U.S. Supreme Court decisions like Citizens United and limit the undue influence of money in politics.
The Government By the People Act/Fair Elections Now Act, which would amplify small contributions from everyday Americans.
And we call on the U.S. Senate to fulfill its constitutional obligation to give proper consideration to a Supreme Court nominee, including timely hearings and a vote by the full Senate.

This work is only possible with your financial support. Please chip in $3 now.
