Our democracy is under attack.

Misinformation, corruption, politicization of government agencies, and attacks on our right to vote are unraveling our democracy.

We must stand together in order to shore up the integrity of the 2020 elections 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.

Protecting Democracy Will Take All of Us

Corruption and abuse of power at the highest levels of government actively threaten the bedrock principles of our representative democracy–respect for the rule of law, free and fair elections, and a peaceful transition of power reflecting the will of the people. Together we must work to expose and prevent misconduct, promote accountability, and amplify truth to protect our fragile democracy.
