Creating meaningful change means organizing in our own communities on issues that affect our rights, our opportunities and our lives. People For the American Way leads a range of campaigns to support constitutional values under attack and to counter right-wing extremism. From fighting for a democracy that works for everyone to challenging attacks on equal rights, all of our campaigns are aimed at making strides toward a country where the promise of America is real for all Americans.
