lowercase d


We seek more directly democratic government, where decisions and the processes that precede them are open to participation by all, collaborative, and informed. lowercase democrats work strategically to help make such government and the culture it entails a reality.

lowercase d is an all-volunteer effort based in New York City that runs on the time and generosity of many people like you. Since 2006 we have been focused, primarily in our local context, on the opportunities and challenges of creating a citizen lawmaking capacity that incorporates contemporary understanding and tools. After thousands of conversations with hundreds of people and thousands of hours of research by volunteers, law student interns, and lawyers, our work is entering an exciting new phase. Join us!
