Protect Our Democracy from Global Threats
Securing democracy at home requires a clear-eyed strategy for addressing threats that come from beyond the U.S. boarders. 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. At the same time, the climate crisis threatens our economy, our health, and our infrastructure. These threats present a clear danger, not only to our people, but also to our system of government and what we stand for. Furthermore, middle class families’ 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, decarbonization, and economics that prioritizes working families’ success, as well as a progressive approach to confronting threats from authoritarian states.
