Our vision is to build an inclusive, transparent, participatory, and equitable democracy of, by, and for the people.

At the intersection of state capitols and grassroots movements, the Democracy Project builds people power by developing, expanding, and deepening the capacity of state legislators to protect and fight for a democracy that reflects and serves “We, the People.” 

Progress towards this vision is rooted in our purpose of cultivating a diverse, national cohort of legislative champions with policy research, messaging guidance, strategic support, and by bridging partnerships between legislators, democracy advocates, and directly impacted communities.
