Defend Democracy Team
“…from Protest To Policy.” Elijah Cummings.
TEAM MISSION and GOALS 2020
Defend the Democracy of the United States: In our country and throughout the world, democratic values are under assault. The Defend Democracy team is committed to educating ourselves and others about the challenges we face and promoting and participating in actions that support and defend democratic values.
Indivisible has joined the Declaration for American Democracy, a historic coalition of over 145 organizations representing millions of people nationwide. 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.
Support the goals of the For the People Act of 2019 (H.R. #1) at the
federal and state levels, including:
• Ensuring clean and fair elections: improve access, promote integrity,
• Ending the dominance of big money in politics: guarantee disclosure,
empower citizens, strengthen oversight
• Ensuring public officials work in the public interest: fortify ethics
law, impose greater ethics enforcement
