No More Stolen ElectionsThis year, large numbers of qualified voters in virtually every primary were denied their right to vote. With the general election fast approaching, it's vital to democratize elections by holding election authorities accountable and by mobilizing for accurate media coverage, voting rights reforms, and recounts when necessary. Sign the pledge of action: No More Stolen Elections! And then prepare to defend voting rights on and after November 8th.

We are currently in the process of planning the third Democracy Convention, tentatively scheduled for the first half of 2017.  To access archives from the first and second Democracy Conventions click here and here.  To receive updates about the next Democracy Convention be sure to join our email list.

Liberty Tree's Global Climate Convergence is a multi-year effort working to unify diverse movements behind the struggle for Climate Democracy.  Currently, we preparing for a third wave of Earth Day to May Day actions in the Spring of 2017, leading up to a global climate strike later next year.

Move to AmendThe national Move to Amend coalition, of which Liberty Tree is a co-founding organization, is the nation's largest, most diverse, and most deeply rooted campaign working to amend the U.S. Constitution to protect our democratic rights by overturning the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court ruling.

Debate Night Questions

No More Stolen Elections!

Do you think voters have a right to information about all of their options at the ballot box? Can we call our process a democratic one when the political parties already in power control who speaks to voters and how often they speak? Without a fair and open debate process as well as unbiased media coverage, many voters are ill equipped to choose the candidate that best reflects their choice - we need profound election reform now!

The 2016 Republican presidential primary was rigged. It wasn't rigged by the Republicans, the Democrats, Russians, space aliens, or voters. It was rigged by the owners of television networks who believed that giving one candidate far more coverage than others was good for their ratings.

No More Stolen Elections!

“You’ve got to go out. You’ve got to go out. And you’ve got to get your friends. And you’ve got to get everyone you know. And you got to watch your polling booths, because I hear too many stories about Pennsylvania. Certain areas. I hear too many bad stories, and we can’t lose an election because of you know what I’m talking about.”

The courageous actions of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the indigenous communities, climate activists, local farmers and community members that continue to oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline project in North Dakota have inspired people all over the country and the world to stand in solidarity and support. If the pipeline project is allowed to continue, it will carry dangerous fracked oil over several states and under the Missouri River - this means destruction of sacred land and water for local Native communities and a climate disaster for people and the planet.
