Around the world, democracy is under attack from gerrymandering, voter suppression, corruption, 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.
Even after the 2020 elections in the United States, 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 climate change action, clean energy, and environmental protections, and 64% support marijuana legalization and decriminalization (not to mention more COVID and financial relief), many politicians continue to block progress in favor of tax cuts for rich donors and big corporations. Moreover, at the state a local level, challenges against fair elections and voting rights are at alarming, historic highs.
That needs to change, and why it's so important to continue supporting voting rights, fair elections, and progressive elected representatives who will fight for positive change and fairer laws.
