Democracy depends on a government that works for all people. Since 2017, Democracy Forward has filed over 650 legal actions and records requests challenging unlawful acts, fought vigorously in court on behalf of those harmed, and notched victories that have improved lives and protected the rule of law.
In statehouses, courtrooms, and communities across the country, we still see threats to democracy every day. Democracy Forward is expanding to use new strategies that oppose abuses of power and fight for the promise of democracy on behalf of all Americans.
We go to court for democracy by challenging abuses of power and attempts to undermine a government that works for people who need it most.
We support advocates engaged in transformative work for people and communities by providing legal representation, strategy, and resources to amplify their voice in government.
We expose overlooked, often under-the-radar threats to democracy by raising public awareness on behalf of the people and communities harmed.
