An important movement is growing in our country — DEMOCRACY SPRING — a mass campaign to save American democracy from the corruption of Big Money in politics and the assault upon our right to vote.
Now is the moment to intervene in the 2016 election season, capturing media attention, and catapulting this critical issue onto center stage — creating a powerful mandate for candidates and members of Congress to support specific pro-democracy reforms which could be passed in 2017. This campaign is endorse by the NAACP, labor unions, elder groups and a growing coalition of over 100 organizations.
In addition, we are organizing a unique Elder Cohort — ELDERS STANDING FOR DEMOCRACY SPRING, for TUESDAY, APRIL 12th.
Elders will stand together — and some will “SIT-IN” together — for what we know to be true — that a thriving and just democracy is the path towards a sustainable world for future generations.
Who is an Elder? a person that uses their wisdom and life experience to guide their actions, speaks for the shared interests of all people as well as for future generations; and wishes to stand with us. This is our legacy: a thriving and just world for all.
