— Our Initiatives

We are focused on implementing SPECIFIC
Election Innovations across the country.

The military veteran population is a cross-section of American society, and military veterans and supporters know how to leverage individual differences to accomplish a mission.


America is at its breaking point:

Partisan polarization in Congress is at its highest levels in more than 100 years. *

The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Democracy Index ranked the United States’ democracy 25th in the world, labeling our Nation a flawed democracy. *

The 116th Congress had a near record-low 15% approval rating, yet 95% of its members were re-elected in the last election. *

Public trust reached a three-decade high shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but declined quickly thereafter. Since 2007, the share saying they can trust the government always or most of the time has not surpassed 30%. *


Why Veterans?

Here are a few reasons why veteran advocates lead:


of veterans self identify as independent or unaffiliated voters. *


of veterans work in public service or with charitable organizations compared to 22% of non-veterans. *


Veterans are still trusted in our communities. *
