We all know our political system is broken.
We need Veterans to help fix it.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to build and mobilize a community of military veterans to advocate for election innovations that unlock competition, make our politics less polarizing and our government more effective.

Our Initiatives

We are focused on implementing specific election innovations across the country.

The Idea

Inspiring and educating one of America’s most-trusted institutions, veterans, to mobilize and advocate for election innovations that will help repair some of America’s least-trusted institutions (the political system and Congress).

The military veteran population is a cross-section of American society. Military veterans and supporters know how to leverage individual differences to accomplish a mission.

Why Veterans?

A few reasons why Veterans can lead the charge:

Statistics

America is Failing

  • Partisan polarization in Congress is at its highest levels in more than 100 years. *

  • The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Democracy Index ranked the United States’ democracy 25th in the world, labeling our Nation a flawed democracy. *

  • The 116th Congress had a near record-low 15% approval rating, yet 95% of its members were re-elected in the last election. *

  • Public trust reached a three-decade high shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but declined quickly thereafter. Since 2007, the share of the U.S. population saying they can trust the government "always or most of the time" has not surpassed 30%. *

Let's take action

How we win

Focused electoral innovations led by state-based coalitions can restore the health of our democracy. Military veterans have a desire to serve and lead their country. Working along side their supporters, Veterans can play a unique and strategic role in realizing these innovations.
