Formed by lawyers who served at the highest levels of the federal government, the Protect Democracy Project works to inform Americans of specific threats to their right to free, fair, and fully-informed self-government.
The Protect Democracy Project is a nonpartisan nonprofit with an urgent goal: to hold the President and the Executive Branch accountable to the laws and longstanding practices that have protected democracy through both Democratic and Republican Administrations. We have seen an unprecedented tide of authoritarian-style politics sweep the country that is fundamentally at odds with the Bill of Rights, the constitutional limitations on the role of the President, and the laws and unwritten norms that prevent overreach and abuse of power. The only limits to prevent a slide away from democratic traditions will be those that are imposed by the Courts, Congress, and the American people.
The Protect Democracy Project provides public education on these threats and how the American people can best confront them. The Protect Democracy Project advances its educational mission through monitoring, investigating, public outreach, and, when appropriate, litigating against government actions that threaten democracy and the free, fair, and fully-informed pursuit of self-government.
