Support the Voter Expansion Project

Voting is one of the most fundamental rights in our democracy. That's why we're launching the Voter Expansion Project. We’re leading the charge to expand the vote, because it's not enough anymore for us to simply protect against voting restrictions.

Join President Bill Clinton and the Democratic Party in our fight to protect and expand the right to vote.

I'm in!

  • The logistics for BBQ with POTUS

    I work for the Operations Team here at the DNC. That means that I spend a lot of time making sure things run smoothly at headquarters -- that people are where they're supposed to be so we can be the party that works for you. But being behind the scenes doesn't always give me the opportunity to interact with our supporters and hear why they're excited about the ideas that make our party what it is. That's why I love these contests. Seriously: One of the most rewarding parts of my job is booking the flights and hotels for supporters who've won the chance to meet our President. There is just something so gratifying in knowing I have a hand in someone's experience of a lifetime.

  • Stand with Florida Women

    As we close out National Women’s Health Week, I’m struck by the dramatic contrast between Republicans’ and Democrats’ priorities when it comes to women’s health.

    Democrats are hard at work helping women access health care by defending the Affordable Care Act, and with it, no co-pay preventive care, guaranteed access to maternity coverage, and ending discrimination by health insurance companies based on pre-existing conditions or gender.

We also celebrate increasing political empowerment of AAPI’s as our community is finding its political voice. With over 20 million citizens nationwide, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are among the fastest growing demographics in the country and are an integral part of our nation’s future. And this growing community supports the Democrats’ mission to improve our schools, spur job creation and economic growth, and ensure that everyone can participate equally in our society.

  • Thoughts on Donald Sterling

    The comments are deeply disturbing and represent a dark period in our nation’s history. From Jackie Robinson to Jason Collins, organized sports have long helped our country move forward and break down many barriers. While it is sad to be reminded that such views still exist, it is important to remember that with all of the progress we've made, we must remain steadfast in our work for civil rights and social justice.

  • 50 years later voting rights still threatened

    Nearly 50 years ago, President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, to outlaw discrimination based on race, religion, gender, and more. The law strengthened voting rights and pushed for an end to racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and in public places. Unfortunately, today's GOP retreats headlong from the battle towards greater equality. In fact, many Republican are trying to sabotage or undermine crucial protections in the Civil Rights Act.
