The promise of government is that it will represent and work for all people; and that it will secure basic rights, freedoms, protections, and opportunities for all. Despite its imperfections, we believe that government can be one of the most effective ways to disrupt inequality and realize people’s aspirations. But governments do not become responsive on their own. It is when people become aware, have pathways for action, and are motivated to organize and engage—becoming part of government and participating in its processes, sharing ideas, and holding it accountable—that governments better fulfill their promise.
