The Lincoln Democracy Institute was created to inform the public about the nature of authoritarianism at all levels. It will point out where authoritarianism is taking root and share what Americans can do to stop it. The Lincoln Democracy Institute will also direct people to pro-democracy organizations, elected officials, and candidates.
The Institute is running a new ad asking Americans where they stand on the line between truth and lies, and violence and democracy, in the wake of January 6th. The ad tells viewers that January 6th did not end when rioters finally cleared the Capitol that day, but that supporters of the insurrection promise more violence and continue to threaten our democracy.
