RootsAction

An online initiative and petition platform dedicated to galvanizing people who are committed to economic fairness, equal rights for all, civil liberties, environmental protection, and defunding wars. They claim to have over 1.5 million active members. Presents itself as a peace group whose goal is to “organize people who are already active into an independent political force, while reaching out in a genuinely populist voice to those who are not committed progressives.”  Seeks to defeat “the corporate-financed and media-fueled right wing, which so deftly utilizes fear, myth and outright lies.  RootsAction pledges to resist the policies of the Republican regime at every turn, while confronting the Democratic Party’s tendency to give ground to extremist proposals in the name of ‘bipartisanship.’“  They see corporate power over both major parties as a poison to the body of politics genuine democracy as its antidote.
