FIX DEMOCRACY FIRST

Our framers promised us a representative democracy. Our politicians have given us anything but. From the corrupting influence of money in politics, to the gerrymandering of congressional districts, to the games played to suppress the vote, to the absurd way that states allocate electoral college votes, our government has destroyed the core promise of a Republic – that citizens would be equal and represented equally.

Equal Citizens  a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization founded by Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig is dedicated to reforms that will achieve citizen equality. We will launch a series of campaigns, both legal and political, that will end the corruption of our representative democracy by restoring the core promise of citizen equality in our Constitution.
