The Problem

Democracy in America is in trouble

Civitech seeks to combat two of the major challenges facing American democracy today. There are more than 500,000 elected offices in the United States, ranging from school boards and city councils to the presidency. Unfortunately, 75% of those races go uncontested each election cycle. 

The New American Majority will determine our country's future, but young people, people of color, and women are often systematically blocked from their right to vote. We are working to remove the barriers to voting to ensure that all Americans can freely participate in democracy. Plus, we need to elect officials who represent the diversity of our country.

Our Vision

A fair new democracy for all Americans

Society is more equitable when leaders at every level compete on ideas and values, not the size of their technical teams or how much they’ve fundraised. We envision a world where everyone has the equal opportunity to vote, run for office, and communicate with elected officials.
