"The Democracy Initiative was created to change the way we think about our democracy, by empowering millions of people to shake off their frustration, join together, and make their voices heard. This change won’t take place overnight. Building a movement takes perseverance and over the course of days, weeks, and years, the movement will grow stronger as Americans see the power of collective action."
