Together We Can Save Democracy

This Spring, join the largest civil disobedience action in a generation, calling on Congress to end the corruption of big money in our politics, and ensure every citizen has an equal voice! Washington, DC. April 2016.

Now is the time. The 2016 election will be the most big money-dominated, secret money-drenched, voter suppression-marred contest in modern American history. Bernie Sanders’ small donor-fueled, Super PAC-free insurgency is a defiant inspiration, but it is an all-too-rare exception to the rule of an election funded by the billionaire class.

If the status quo goes unchallenged, this election may well yield a President and a Congress more bound to the masters of big money than ever before -- crushing hopes for progress on climate change, economic inequality, mass incarceration, and more. Our planet and people simply cannot afford that. But there is another possibility.

If we intervene in the business-as-usual of this election cycle in a way that no one can ignore, we can make it a turning point toward reform.

Whether Congress acts or not we will win by focusing the nation’s attention — as never before — on the urgency of this crisis, the existence of solutions to it, and the strength of the popular demand to enact them.

With leaders like Lawrence Lessig, Zephyr Teachout, Cenk Uygur, and Mark Ruffalo already pledged to risk arrest and over 40 organizations signed on to help, we can create a watershed moment in America that will force this issue into the spotlight and make the election a referendum on whether our democracy should belong to the People as a whole or to the billionaire class alone.
