Democracy: A Journal of Ideas, Inc. is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating a vibrant and vital progressivism for the 21st century that builds on the movement’s proud history, is true to its central values, and is relevant to present times. We do this by serving as a place where ideas can be developed and important debates can be spurred. We seek breakthrough thinking on the concepts and approaches that respond to the central transformations of our time: the breakdown of the ladder of upward mobility; the promise and problems of a information-based, globalized economy; new national security threats which cross old boundaries and defy old assumptions, from jihadist terrorism to climate change, pandemics, and poverty; and a society where people work and live in new and different ways.
Making this happen takes resources, and for that we rely on you: our readers and supporters. Democracy is completely supported by generous donations of all sizes. If you are interested in supporting Democracy’s work, mail checks to us directly at 818 18th Street NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20006, or use the “Donate” button below.
