United to Protect Democracy

Protect Democracy is dedicated to preventing American democracy from declining into authoritarianism. Based on input from experts who have studied how other democracies have declined in the 21st century, Protect Democracy works to prevent the six tactics that are typically employed by modern autocrats from taking root here: politicization of independent institutions, spreading of government disinformation, aggrandizement of power in the hands of the executive, quashing of dissent, delegitimizing of minority communities, and corruption of elections. Since its inception last year, Protect Democracy has launched more than 40 legal actions and released a legislative blueprint for restoring democratic guardrails after Trump.
