About Us


Americans Take Action is a network of populists who believe that the American government should represent we the people once again, that the economy should work for all of us, and that the internet should remain free and open for generations to come.

We are just regular everyday Americans – engineers and teachers, activists and lawyers, trade unionists and professionals, scientists and nurses – who believe in making a difference, having an impact, and leaving the planet a little better off than how we found it. As practical people, whenever we face a challenge, Americans take action to fix it.

Whether through legislation or an amendment, through the states or through Congress, Americans Take Action is working every day to restore free and fair elections in America so that every citizen has the freedom to vote and votes matter more than dollars in elections once again. We also are working to create a purpose-driven economy where all work is respected and rewarded, as well as ensuring that the internet remains free and open for generations to come.

Americans Take Action is a force-multiplier for all of these campaigns, raising the level of active support among the American population for any number of potential solutions to the problem of corruption in government, an economy that’s not working, and threats to internet freedom. Through the use of new online organizing technology as well as old-school organizing tactics, we will help drive attention and activism toward a growing list of coalition partners, who’ve all joined the fight to defend democracy in America.

There is an African proverb that says, “You can go fast alone, or we can go far together.” It is our hope that fellow populists of goodwill will join our growing coalition and that we can all create great change by working together. At Americans Take Action, we believe that every person has the power to make a difference and that together we will create great change. If you are reading this, it’s time for you to sign up, join the fight, and most importantly, become an American who takes action.
