Our democracy is under attack.
Misinformation, corruption, politicization of government, and attacks on the previous elections' results continue to threaten the foundations of our democracy.
We must stand together to ensure our democracy is not compromised.
The Democracy Protection Initiative is a program of Government Accountability Project, a non-partisan, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and the nation's leading public interest whistleblower protection and advocacy organization. For over 40 years, we have promoted government and corporate accountability by protecting whistleblowers and ensuring their disclosures make a difference.
We Must Shore Up Democracy
Corruption and abuse of power at the highest levels of government actively threaten the bedrock principles of our representative democracy. Together we must work to expose and prevent misconduct, promote accountability, and amplify truth to protect our fragile democracy.
Employees who witness and report wrongdoing are the best defense against abuses of power that betray public trust.
Advocacy organizations use the power of information to hold the government accountable and prevent further wrongdoing.
Journalists hold institutions accountable by publishing verified information about abuses of power to create an informed and engaged citizenry.
Ethical election workers and officials are the best defense against illegal interference with our right to vote and have our votes counted. But false claims about election integrity have not only put the nonpartisan administration of our elections at risk, but election workers as well.
