Democracy

We advocate for government for and by the people

These political times have some of us running to become more informed and more active; others of us may be feeling that our political activism has little to no effect. We take a bite-sized and pragmatic approach to ways that Ambassadors can and do make a positive change through political actions and government partnerships. From your City Hall, District Attorney's office, or even City Council, we believe that government does not have to mean corruption, impasse, and fake news--it can and should be standing up to unfair and illegal policies and laws. Energized by what you can do, even outside of the Beltway's political landscape? Then join us in this passion area!
