We are progressives who could no longer stand by while the legitimacy of our democracy is threatened. We believe that our democracy cannot be taken for granted, but rather must be protected and its legitimacy upheld. We formed LegitAction to rally and organize other progressives around four pressing threats to our democracy, and galvanize action at the national, state, and local levels to restore our democratic legitimacy.
Our mission is to advocate for the restoration and protection of a legitimate U.S. government that is accountable to its citizens by raising awareness of the political forces and special interests undermining our country’s credibility and legitimacy. We aim to empower individuals and grassroots organizations committed to these same issues by raising awareness, making information accessible, supporting progressive candidates, and elevating local voices and connecting them to larger organizations.
Our vision is a government that is legitimate and accountable to its people. For this to happen, we need a government that allows and encourages unimpeded participation from every citizen and reflects its citizens in its actions.
