THE AWARDS

Welcome to the first-ever Democracy Heroes, where we celebrate the fearless change agents making waves in democracy, from grassroots movements to national initiatives.

I Am A Voter and HeadCount in partnership with The Rockefeller Foundation are celebrating exceptional individuals who embody the spirit of democracy as champions and change agents. 

These remarkable honorees are reshaping the voting landscape and inspiring others with their dedication to democratic values. 

Democracy Heroes not only celebrates these efforts but seeks to create a community of like-minded individuals and provide them with the resources and mentorship to scale their efforts and drive real change. 

Join us as we spotlight their inspiring stories and celebrate those who believe in the power of democracy to shape a better future.

THE PROGRAM

Each Democracy Hero honoree was selected based on their nonpartisan efforts to promote democracy – from voter registration to education. 

Honorees will have access to resources, mentorship, content creation, and additional opportunities to continue and amplify their efforts. 

The inaugural Democracy Heroes will be celebrated in New York City with an awards dinner ceremony this fall.
