Democracy Is Worth Fighting For

Democracy is under attack and authoritarianism is on the rise, not in some far-off place, but right here at home. There are forces at work that are determined to suppress or disqualify Americans’ votes and make us question the legitimacy, safety and security of our elections and the legitimacy of our political system.

Transparency Is Key to a
Healthy Democracy

The Lincoln Democracy Institute will operate at the national and state levels to provide real-time information about threats to our democratic system. That may be repudiating lies on Fox News or holding accountable a candidate who threatens violence or to disrupt voters’ ability to participate. In states where legislatures are threatening free and fair elections, we will bring pressure on state and local election officials to ensure they do their jobs in the most transparent way possible.
