Welcome to the Alliance

We are a diverse coalition of more than 80 respected established organizations committed to revitalizing democratic practice in America.

Since it’s often difficult for any one group to fully capture public attention or broadly popularize solutions, we are banding together to create great impact across three broad areas: civic engagement, governance and policymaking, and campaign and election processes.
