While COVID-19 cases continue to rise in states across the country, too many states lack critical resources to ensure safe and accessible voting this fall. We know that ramping up vote-by-mail, expanding early voting, and offering safe in-person voting on election day is possible, but only if we secure resources and commitments from national, state, and local leaders. That’s why Public Citizen is launching our Democracy Defenders initiative, which will launch a coordinated effort to protect our elections from now through election day.
Apply now to become a Democracy Defender to receive training and resources to help you lead the local effort to protect our elections. No previous experience required!
Becoming a Democracy Defender means you’re signing up to lead and participate in both local and nation-wide efforts to secure our vote for this fall.
Democracy Defenders will work with an organizer to create a campaign plan that makes sense for you and your community and will have access to training programs, including webinars on lobbying election officials, digital organizing, and press work.
Together, we can win the funding and reforms needed to protect our democracy.
