Our Mission

We are building an international pro-democracy solidarity movement at the grassroots level.

Action for Democracy is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that works to empower democratic actors to defend democracy. We are committed to an inclusive and democratic future and we mobilize people and campaigns to support this vision.
