Start a Democracy Club

Strengthen democracy through participation

Democracy Club
We’re at a pivotal time in America’s history. It’s people like us — your friends and ours — who will change the course of our democracy story.

When we look back on this time, we’ll be proud to know we didn’t just watch and worry — we stood up and took action to defend democracy.

We want you and your friends to feel this same sense of pride and positive impact, so we’ve written a guide to help you start your own Democracy Club today!

Like a book club, but for democracy!

A Democracy Club is a group of friends who gather regularly to help each other stand up for democracy and civil rights in ways that add up.

As a Democracy Club, we multiply our political impact while staying positive, energized, and connected. 

It's effective.

Worrying and following news headlines doesn't change anything. Democracy Clubs focus on concrete action and real impact.

It's energizing

Experience the deep satisfaction of participation -- knowing you're making a difference. We brainstorm, share ideas, and inspire each other to keep going.

Why We Do It

It's Sustainable

We used to meet monthly in each others' homes, but now our Democracy Club meets weekly via Zoom and keeps in touch via group text. You and your friends can choose what works best for you.

It's Fun

Let’s face it, these are challenging times. We need to bring joy to each others’ lives. Meaningful friendship. Feeling part of something bigger. Plus laughter and support. Democracy Club provides all these things.
