Protect Our Democracy from Global Threats
Securing democracy at home requires a clear-eyed strategy for addressing threats that come from abroad. Dangerous, authoritarian regimes are using new types of warfare to promote fear and cause harm within our borders, threatening everything from our power grids to our elections. These threats present a clear danger, not only to our people, but also to our system of government and what we stand for. At the same time, the global economy is no longer working for middle class families whose futures hang in the balance of trade deals and international economic policies driven by the wealthiest multinational corporations.
GDI will advance a new approach to international trade and economics that prioritizes working families’ success, as well as a progressive approach to confronting threats from authoritarian states.
