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 to protect our democracy and resist Trump’s dangerous agenda. Our community quickly grew to over two million Americans, across all 50 states, who have driven more than a million constituent calls to lawmakers and contacted tens of millions of our fellow voters.

But Donald Trump was a symptom of the corruption and racism that exists in our political system, not the root cause, and defeating him at the ballot box was not enough to pass a progressive agenda. To make meaningful progress on countless issues, from health care to climate change, we must break down barriers that conservatives have built to block progress.

That’s why Stand Up America is working to build our democracy back better by rooting out the corruption that stands in the way of progressive change and building a more representative democracy.

The Stand Up America team is here to provide you with the information and resources you need to take meaningful action and help pass bold democracy reform. Whether it’s calling your lawmaker about urgent legislation or sharing information with your friends and neighbors, we’ll keep you informed about how you can most effectively use your voice to combat corruption and build a more representative democracy.
