“Democracy is not a state, it is an act. Each generation must do its part.”

— Rep. John Lewis

In Rep. John Lewis’ 2020 essay Together, You Can Redeem the Soul of Our Nation, the late Georgia congressman channeled the legacy of his mentor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when he said, “Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by getting in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble. Voting and participating in the democratic process are key. The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change agent you have in a democratic society. You must use it because it is not guaranteed. You can lose it.”

As Dr. King said in 1963, “This is the time for vigorous and positive action.”
In 2021, join our movement for “Democracy in Action” by:

  • demanding our leaders extend and expand pro-voter policies from 2020;
  • advocating for fair voting maps in an independent and transparent
    redistricting process;
  • listening to communities of color, which disproportionately face racial bias and limits to voting access, and building connection to what’s on the ballot in this year’s local elections.
