We deserve the right to dream freely, not be held back by student debt.

Democracy Done Right

With each generation, voters are more diverse, so why is our voting system still fit for 19th century white landowners? 

Democracy Done Right is about fixing all that! We believe that when more people participate in our democracy, the better it works. And for more people to participate in our democracy, we must build voting systems for the modern voter. The young voters of today are the largest and most diverse voting bloc in our nation’s history, and we deserve a voting system that reflects who we are and the progress we’ve made.

Protect Abortion Access

The Supreme Court eliminated the federal constitutional protection of abortion rights set by Roe v. Wade and gave the authority to decide abortion rights to individual states. This decision threatens the lives of millions who will seek an abortion, especially Black, Indigenous, and people of color, and people working to make ends meet. Let’s fight back.

Here are three actions you can take today to help protect our right to abortion access, and encourage legislators to codify the protections of Roe v. Wade.

Protect Democracy Initiatives

Campus Takeover

Campus Takeover is a nationwide effort to mobilize students around elections and to create a culture of civic engagement on college campuses during the Civic Holidays (National Voter Registration Day, National Voter Education Week, Vote Early Day, and Election Hero Day.


National Voter Education Week helps voters bridge the gap between registering to vote and casting a ballot. During this week, voters have the opportunity to find their polling location, understand their ballot, make a plan to vote in person or remotely, and more.

Vote Early Day

We are proud to be a partner for the first-ever Vote Early Day. Vote Early Day is a movement of nonprofits, businesses, election administrators, and creatives working to ensure all Americans know their options to vote early and make their voices heard.

Power the Polls

The Alliance is a proud partner of Power the Polls. In 2020, America faced a record shortage of poll workers, and over 700,000 people stepped up via Power the Polls to help address that challenge. Our democracy depends on ordinary people who make sure every election runs smoothly and everyone’s vote is counted.

Want to take action locally?

The Alliance is America’s premier youth organizing network because our work is driven 100% by local organizations. When the movement succeeds, it’s because of the local organizations putting in the work. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters in politics is people power at the local level. That’s why we support the organizations that build it.
