Human Rights and Democracy

Democracy & Human Rights TF image

The Human Rights & Democracy Task Force believes that, in a democracy, government should be accountable to the people. We hold that shared values and strong institutions are essential to ensure that accountability—values such as the rule of law and institutions such as a free press. We consider our founders’ plan to control government’s power through establishing three co-equal branches of government to have been brilliant. We support a continuing effort to become a more perfect union, reaffirming and strengthening the principle of equality under the law, the universal right to vote, freedoms of speech and worship, and freedom from discrimination. We support these values and principles for our democracy and for democracies around the world.

With threats to democracy at home and abroad, we need to have the facts in order to push back on tactics that limit democratic participation.
