RepresentUs is America’s leading nonpartisan organization fighting to protect and strengthen democracy. We unite unlikely allies from across the political spectrum who put country over party to pass pro-democracy laws, fight corruption, and defeat authoritarian threats.

How We Win

We are following a proven strategy. Throughout American history — from interracial marriage and women’s suffrage to marriage equality — issues gained momentum in the states before they won federally.

We have won 161 victories in cities and states across America since our founding 10 years ago. We’re building the movement for democracy reform, and we’re just getting started.
