Too often our political parties and elected officials have been unduly influenced by the extremes of the Far Right and the Far Left. We'd like to change that.
We are Americans who believe our elected officials should be less concerned about the welfare of their political parties and more concerned about the welfare of their nation. We should be Americans first and Democrats / Republicans second.
Rock the Vote's mission is to engage and build political power for young people in our country.
Founded twenty years ago at the intersection of popular culture and politics, Rock the Vote is growing its team and its campaigns in 2011, to support the tidal wave of young people who want to get involved in elections and seize the power of the youth vote to create political and social change.
"FairVote is a catalyst for reforming our elections to respect every vote and every voice through bold approaches to increase voter turnout, meaningful ballot choices and fair representation. As the national organization most focused on fundamental structural reform of American elections, we act as a traditional think tank through careful research, innovative analysis, effective educational resources and timely conferences, but also creatively engage with leading reformers, thought leaders and the media to turn new ideas into widely accepted policy options.
