We Need Your Help — Again

Jul 25, 2019 · 1 min read

Next week, millions of Americans will watch the second round of Democratic presidential debates.

In the first round, democracy reform was mentioned only a handful of times, and not a single question about it was asked.

That was unacceptable.

So we’re working to make sure that this time the candidates speak openly about the need to fix our broken democracy.

Soon, we will reach out to each campaign with our demand. But until then, we need your help.

Let’s flood social media with responses to the following question:

If you were elected president, what steps would you take to make sure every voice is heard and every vote counts in our democracy?

Share your answer on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #askaboutdemocracy and we will send your responses to the campaigns.

Together we can start a conversation to highlight the concrete ways we can fix our democracy that hopefully makes its way to the debate stage.

Excited to see what you have to say.
