Support Demos


Demos means “the people”, and since our founding in 2000, we have been fighting to ensure that all people in this country are given an equal say in our democracy and an equal chance in our economy. However, inequality—economic, political and racial—is on the rise. It threatens the promise of America by weakening our democracy and denying millions of Americans the economic security they deserve. Your tax-deductible donation is critical to helping Demos create the ideas and action needed to fight against these growing inequalities, and to ensure that we create a better America for future generations.
