The Democracy Initiative, launched in 2013, seeks to restore the core principle of political equality.
Labor, civil rights, voting rights, environmental, good government and other like-minded organizations with broad memberships are committed to building a movement to halt the corrupting influence of corporate money in politics, prevent the systemic manipulation and suppression of voters, and address other obstacles to significant reform, including the abuse of U.S. Senate rules that allow a small minority to obstruct deliberation and block action on legislation addressing the critical challenges facing our nation.
Fix the Senate Now is a project of the Democracy Initiative.
