Freedom is under attack: preservation of representative democracy is not a republican or democratic issue: it’s an American issue.

An unprecedented attack on our system of representative government is now underway across the country. Increasingly, candidates that lose at the polls are refusing to concede their defeat and instead attack the integrity of the election. In order to defend our free institutions of representative government, non-partisan religious and community groups have organized a public forum to publicize these threats to our freedom, and to suggest ways in which a concerned citizenry can defend our system from attack.

Find out what we can do together.  Email Social Action Coordinator Sonia Arora for more information at: socialaction@ehsli.org
