Unite America

Posted on Wednesday, June 19, 2024

Relaunched in 2019, Unite America and its 30+ person team has grown to be a leader in the election reform movement. Over the past five years, we have mobilized $70+ million dollars from a cross-partisan community of philanthropists to achieve dozens of policy victories across the country.

We aim to accomplish our goals in three ways:

  • We Put Voters First: Unite America invests in party-neutral changes to the way we vote that puts voters first and produces more accountability, better representation and better results.
  • We are focused on solving the Primary Problem: Specifically, we are focused on solving how partisan primaries disenfranchise voters and disincentivize our leaders from solving problems.
  • We are building the premier cross-partisan community of philanthropists: Our team sources, diligences, and recommends investment opportunities, and adds significant value to our partners through hands-on support and shared infrastructure

Recent victories where we played a leading or a major supporting role to win: a major anti-gerrymandering campaign in Virginia; a first-of-its-kind top-four nonpartisan primary system in Alaska, and a ballot initiative in Nevada to implement Alaska-style reforms in that state. We are poised to dramatically scale our impact in the years to come. For more information, check out our victories.

At Unite America, we are working to build a more representative and functional government that puts voters first and reflects the diversity of our country, and an inclusive democracy in which leaders embrace problem-solving over fueling divisiveness. Likewise, we have a vision of building an organization that reflects diverse identities, ideologies, experiences, and perspectives; a culture of working across differences toward common goals; and a workplace where everyone feels included, respected, and heard. Our organizational values reinforce this commitment as we work to model the leadership we seek, solve problems together, and take care of one another, to name a few.
