Millions of us, young and old, from cities to suburbs, across race and place of origin, voted for the United States of our greatest imaginations—a fairer, more equal, and just country where everyone can thrive. The basis of our democracy is that we the people pick our leaders—but our work doesn’t end at the ballot box. Once our elected officials are in office, we must hold them accountable! Contact your elected officials today let them know about the issues that are important to you! Together, we can build a future democracy that truly represents all American people.

Integrity is key, especially when votes on important issues are in their hands and democracy is on the line.
