Worried about our democracy?

THE DEMOCRACY MOVEMENT IS HERE!

Together, let's make history

 

The website DemocracyMovement.US is under construction; so, please email us at info@smallplanet.org, and we will let you know the moment it goes live. (And tell your friends!)

 

We’re worried, too, but we are also fired up. Millions of Americans—driven by concerns from racial justice to the climate crisis—now agree: Our nation can make real progress only with real democracy.

 

And the great news? We’re achieving victories—furthering our freedom to vote, countering big money’s grip on politics, ending gerrymandering, and more. Discover more on the forthcoming DemocracyMovement.US website where you’ll discover new allies, great stories, opportunities to jump into the action, and keep up-to-speed on democracy’s journey!

 

Here's to the thrill of democracy,
