RootsAction is an online initiative dedicated to galvanizing people who are committed to economic fairness, equal rights for all, civil liberties, environmental protection - and defunding endless wars. RootsAction is mobilizing behind policies that actually address the immense economic, social, racial and environmental problems facing our country. The 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. This is crucial for defeating the corporate-financed and media-fueled right wing, which so deftly utilizes racism, 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."
