We the People Project fights for the day when the 5 million Americans living in U.S. territories and the District of Columbia are treated as full and equal members of We the People; in short, "Equal Rights, Wherever You Live."
Our values are centered on the basic principle that all Americans should have equal rights and representation, wherever you live.
Our focus is on the power of impact litigation and grass roots organizing to help drive change for these Americans, who are disenfranchised from the political process. Both inside and outside the courtroom, we work to share the stories of these Americans with a national audience.
Join us in building new movement centered on achieving "Equal Rights, Wherever You Live."
