People Power winning back our democracy. Citizen rebellions breaking out, state by state. It’s a great story, mostly unknown because it gets only skimpy media coverage. For us, it’s Topic #1 and you can learn lots more at our website, reclaimtheamericandream.org.
People have grown cynical about politicians. They’re fed up with Washington. So the states are now the battleground for civic action.
For every flaw in our politics – dark money, vote suppression, gerrymandering, Citizens United, Mega-Donors, hyper-partisanship - grassroots reformers are putting solutions to work at the state level.
So join us here for stories of grassroots heroes making a difference, combating billionaire and corporate money, empowering small donors, fighting for voters rights, mobilizing movements to make our democracy fairer, more transparent and more inclusive.
This is not a story of Republicans vs Democrats. It’s a story of the People vs the Politicians, of People Power rising up against fat cats and power brokers – and winning.
