The Three Keys to Reclaiming Our Democracy

Barriers to the ballot box, corporate funded elections, gridlock in Washington, DC—yikes! Our democracy is in distress: corporate influence is at an all-time high; citizen belief and engagement, at an all-time low. To achieve democratic change, we must push back against corporate and billionaire-funded efforts to suppress voter participation, stop the influence of corporate money in our political system and end the obstruction and abuse of the rules in the U.S. Senate. Civil rights, labor, and environmental organizations with strong memberships and field operations launched the Democracy Initiative earlier this year to engage in these fights. Sen. Tom Udall will share how this successful coalition work drove reform of Senate rules and his Constitutional Amendment to overturn Citizens United. We’ll explore shared narratives that bring these issues and our memberships together and discuss how new and old organizing strategies can be best used to amplify our collective impact and win.
