Expanding Our Voting Power

Our democracy is stronger when every eligible voter can participate.

Raising Our Voices & Blunting the Influence of Money

Everyone should have an equal voice in our democracy.

Creating Fair Representation

Our government and elected officials should be a representation of our communities.


Our Mission


Everyday people are stepping up to take collective action to build a democracy that works for all. When democracy works, our elected officials can deliver on the promise of democracy to ensure our communities, our economy, and our planet thrive. This is our movement and our democracy. The Field Guide connects activist and organizations across the movement to build excitement both locally and nationally for social change. Courage is contagious. As we connect with others already standing up boldly for democracy, we spark confidence in ourselves and others.

Current Campaigns


Stand up with everyday people in your local communities to expand democracy. You get involved today in a campaign in your start or ignite your own democracy reform by mobilizing people to take steps to make sure democracy works for all.

To build power and momentum strong enough to create historic change, a social movement must be conscious of itself and visible to others. To succeed, we each must see a welcoming place for ourselves in the potentially transformative Democracy Movement. So in this Field Guide, we strive to make connection easy and to generate excitement about the vast scope and diverse aspects of the rising Democracy Movement. Courage is contagious. As we connect with others already standing up boldly for democracy, we spark confidence in ourselves and others.
