What we do — and why we do it:

Stand Up America began in the weeks after the 2016 election, when hundreds of thousands of concerned Americans came together online to organize and resist Trump’s dangerous agenda. Our community has quickly grown to over two million Americans, across all 50 states, who are taking action daily.

But Donald Trump is a symptom of our broken democracy, and voting him out of office will not be enough to repair our political system and pass a progressive agenda. To make meaningful progress on countless progressive issues, from health care to climate change, we must reform a system that serves the interests of the wealthy over working people. 

That’s why Stand Up America is working to increase voter participation, protect the right to vote and unrig the corrupt system that stands in the way of progressive change.

The Stand Up America team is here to provide you with the information and resources you need to take meaningful action. Whether it’s an upcoming protest or calling your lawmaker about urgent legislation, we’ll keep you informed about how you can most effectively use your voice to protect our democracy and advance progressive change.

How We Do It:

Stand Up America is a digital-forward organization. We run digital campaigns that engage millions of progressives and drive both online and offline action to strengthen our democracy. We believe that virtual organizing and mobilization are essential to securing progressive victory, especially in 2020. To maximize our impact, we rely on digital tools and create online spaces where our volunteers can gather and effect change.
