Strengthening Democracy Colorado

Our Work

We believe that a society that works for everyone requires a democracy that works for everyone. That's why we're working to ensure every eligible voter casts a ballot in every election. It also means making sure that those ballots mean something.

And we are pursuing that work directly.

We're dissatisfied with waiting for our elected officials to fix our broken political system. That's what got us here. We pursue nonpartisan, direct change through citizen-led ballot initiatives and legal challenges to set our democracy right.

That's why we need you to join us. People, not money, are our key to success. Our government is dominated by money from our nation's wealthiest citizens intending to implement their will. Is it any wonder this hasn't resulted in a democracy built to work for all of us?

When we harness enough citizen activists and channel our efforts, we can do this work together. We can put reforms on the ballot in Colorado by gathering signatures that directly lead to laws that fix these problems. We intend to run our first successful initiative campaign in time to make the 2018 ballot. All it takes is a little bit of work from a lot of people. Sign up to commit to helping us gather signatures to make reform a reality!


SDC is supported by small donors pledging $5 to $25 a month. This allows us to remain independent from the influence of foundations and corporations that all to often hem in the public debate with their views of what's acceptable and their own pet projects.
