Indivisible 
“WE BEAT TRUMP. NOW, LET’S SAVE DEMOCRACY.
Right now, we are facing the interlocking catastrophes of a rigged democracy, global pandemic, unimaginable and growing wealth inequality, racial injustice, and the escalating impacts of the climate crisis. We’re fighting back. People like you are leading local Indivisible groups in every single state. Be part of history—join the Indivisible movement.
Local groups build and wield power in ways that individuals can’t. To create change, you need the power that comes with working together.”

“Common Cause wins concrete, pro-democracy reforms that break down barriers to participation, ensure each of us has an equal voice and vote, and rebuild trust in our government.
By empowering people like you to make change, we have an impact in every congressional district and state legislature.”

Focus 2020 
“Focus 2020 fills critical gaps to safeguard our democracy, expand the electorate, and ensure fair elections.
When democracy is on the line, we fund and staff vital grassroots, voting and civic organizations to boost their capacity and deliver results.
Our unconventional approach identifies under-resourced efforts, then puts skilled volunteers to work on high-impact projects. This unique model allows Focus 2020 to execute with a laser focus on what matters most.”
