Our democracy is under attack - and not just from Donald Trump. It's under seige from unethical profiteers, corporate lobbying, gerrymandering, voter suppression, and, in some cases, even the abdication of moral responsibility within the tech community.
But we also have an opportunity to use this turmoil to turn the tables and create the right system. A system that's fair, moral, and human.
Despite Democrat's 2018 Midterm Election wins in the U.S. House of Representatives and at the state level, American democracy remains the least representative of the will of the people it's been in recent history. Corporate and PAC money in politics is at all-time highs. And although 70% of Americans want universal background checks, more responsible gun safety laws, Medicare for all, and a higher minimum wage; 66% support more clean energy and environmental protections, and 64% support marijuana legalization and decriminalization, corporate-funded Republicans in Congress continue to block progress in favor of tax cuts for their rich donors and big companies.

Get Involved in a Campaign
There are hundreds of different campaign volunteer positions and GOTV actions listed on Brightest - all over the United States, with more being added every day. Each one has a direct line of communication to the campagin or a local partner to help you get started fast.
Now that we've flipped the house and made key state-level legislative gains across the U.S., we now have the power (and a platform) to bring progressive, working class ideals, fairness, equality, and humanity back to our government by finishing what we started in 2020.
It's critically important we continue to organize and harness the anger and frustration we all feel toward the current administration into tangible, grassroots action. That's why we've worked hard at Brightest to curate the best ways you can get involved and support progressive, Democratic, and Democratic Socialist campaigns in every state.
Don't just read the news - let's respond, work together, and do something about it.
