Demos is a dynamic “think-and-do” tank that powers the movement for a just, inclusive, multiracial democracy. Through policy research, litigation, and deep relationships with grassroots organizations, Demos champions solutions that will create a democracy and economy rooted in racial equity. Demos’ work is guided by three goals: to achieve true democracy by reducing the role of money in politics, amplifying the voice of the people, and guaranteeing the right to vote; to build pathways to ensure a diverse, expanded middle class in a new, sustainable economy; and to create progressive change with the partnership and leadership of on-the-ground organizations based in communities of color.
