Restoring Citizen Authority over Corporations

ReclaimDemocracy.org works to create a representative democracy with an actively participating public, where citizens don’t merely choose from a menu of options determined by elites, but play an active role in guiding the country and its political agenda. We believe that one’s influence should be a direct result of the quality of one’s ideas and the energy one puts into promoting these ideas, independent of wealth or status … (about 1/2).

Our staff also went on to create the American Independent Business Alliance, to advance local organizing and has helped more than two dozen communities form local Alliances.
  • Work for Constitution-level Change: While we realize the necessity of defensive struggles against corporate harm to our communities, environment, human rights and more, we strive to think and work differently. We believe that campaigns in which “victory” is defined as maintaining the status quo cannot produce needed systemic changes. We don’t limit ourselves to “politically realistic” goals. Instead, we seek transformations that will require broad and deep public education and grassroots organizing on a scale not seen in decades.

Ultimately, we aim to help drive a broad-based Democracy Movement that will effect at least three core legal changes – either through Constitutional Amendment or reversing Supreme Court precedent: … (full text).
