To win on the issues that impact our lives: workers’ rights, environmental justice, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, immigration reform, and more, we must have a base of grassroots activists who are passionate about their kitchen table issues to make the link to democracy reforms. Collectively, we will expand our leadership and capacity for local and state campaigns and build a demand for reform.
Democracy Champions are the foundation for the pro-democracy movement. Protecting and expanding our democracy requires ongoing engagement, 365 days a year—not just during an election season.
The training creates a cadre of leaders who will be motivated, prepared, and empowered to take on local democracy campaigns by connecting democracy to the other issues that motivate them. Through exercises and discussion, participants will make the connection for themselves. They will see how democracy is a cross-cutting, silo-busting issue that connects us all.
