About Democracy Spring

Democracy Spring is a movement organization committed to winning fundamental democracy reforms that would end the corruption of big money in politics and protect the right to vote for all Americans. We use campaigns of escalating nonviolent action to achieve this goal and believe in the power of mass civil disobedience to transform our political system.

This past April, we brought together over 1,300 people to risk arrest on the steps of our nation's Capitol, demanding that Congress take immediate action to get money out of politics and ensure free and fair elections for all, making it the largest single act of civil disobedience of the 21st century in the United States. 

In July, we took mass nonviolent direct action to disrupt the DNC in Philadelphia, demanding that the Democratic Party commit to pass sweeping democracy reforms. 

On December 19, 2016 we mobilized thousands of Americans from all 50 states to protest Donald Trump's undemocratic rise to power by calling on the Electoral College to respect the will of the people and refuse to vote for Trump. 

Now we're taking the fight for real democracy nationwide by building our decentralized network of autonomous local teams across the country. We will organize and escalate until we win a "one person, one vote" democracy for all.
