We all know our political system is broken.

We need veterans to help repair it.

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.
