Let's have as much representative democracy as necessary, and as much participatory democracy as possible.
A Democracy Movement for the U.S.A.
Liberty Tree is uniquely committed to building a democracy movement for the U.S.A.. We provide vital support to grassroots campaigns for democratic reform in many areas of American life, and bring those campaigns together to form a united movement for democracy.
Our current priorities include:
This 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.

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.
The 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.
