Who are we?
A group of voters from across the political spectrum who believe Citizens should play a greater role in the policy process & that the best way to achieve this goal is to ensure that every state has access to Referendums and Citizen Initiatives.
What are Referendums & Initiatives?
Referendums & Initiatives are forms of Direct Democracy; a tool that allows Citizens to vote on issues rather than representatives.
What's the difference?
A Referendum is a proposal by elected officials
A Citizen Initiative is a proposal by Citizens, usally via a petition.
In both cases, Citizens vote on an issue. The difference is in who proposes the vote.
We want to empower the millions of Americans who have complex views that don't fit a single party.
How do we do it?
We push for a consitutional amendment that requires each state to provide mechanisms of Direct Democracy.
