Community & Democracy
Healthy people require resilient communities and supportive public systems that enable them to thrive.
We’re helping build stronger, more empowered communities through on-the-ground support and our work to shape a healthier democratic system.
To protect and empower communities around the world, we provide critical support and resources to increase access to healthcare and basic needs. We believe food is a right and partner with local organizations to address the impacts of income inequality to ensure no child knows what it is to be hungry.
We are proud to support Second Harvest’s mission to end hunger through nutritious food, education, and leadership. 500,000 people on average receive food from Second Harvest every month — double the number served before the pandemic. Only with adequate food and nutrition can children learn, adults work, and our community thrive.
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises — and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future. In more than 40 countries and over 20 U.S. cities, our dedicated teams provide clean water, shelter, healthcare, education, and empowerment support to refugees and displaced people. We are proud to support the IRC in its mission.
We accelerate systemic changes to make American democracy stronger and fairer.
The Center for Ballot Freedom brings together leaders from across the American political spectrum to reduce the extreme partisan polarization of our two-party system and replace it with a healthy multi-party democracy. To do this, the Center is reviving and re-legalizing “fusion voting,” which allows two or more parties to nominate the same candidate. Fusion lets voters support third parties without “wasting” their votes on nonviable candidates, incentivizes candidates to build broader multi-party coalitions, and encourages new parties to emerge by enabling them to play a potentially decisive role in elections, rather than relegating them to the role of “spoilers.”
