More about this Initiative
ADL (Anti-Defamation League) is an active member of Project CODE because we believe that political violence poses a threat, not only to our democratic institutions but to the marginalized communities that are vital to the fabric of our nation’s diverse thoughts, values and ideals.
The Asian American Foundation participates in Project CODE because the state of belonging and prosperity that TAAF seeks for the Asian American and Pacific Islander community relies on a society free of any violence -- political violence included -- and is built on the belief that we all deserve the freedom of safety. Furthermore, political violence threatens the underpinnings of democracy upon which diversity, equity and inclusion thrives.
Giffords Law Center participates in Project CODE because its mission includes confronting the threat that armed violence poses to our democracy and the role guns play in the effort to destabilize democratic institutions.
Guns are often tools of political violence, and can even serve as organizing principles for some extremist groups. Everytown for Gun Safety seeks to combat the rise in armed extremism with insightful research about the nexus between guns and extremist violence, and policy solutions that make communities and our democracy safer.
The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is the nation’s largest and oldest civil rights volunteer-based organization that empowers Hispanic Americans and builds strong Latino communities. LULAC stands with Project CODE in the fight to address rising political violence and threats to our democracy. Reported data confirms hate groups are increasing and dramatically targeting Latino communities, communities of color and members of the LGBTQ community. LULAC looks forward to working with our community partners to identify long-term solutions to these real problems.
NCAI (National Congress of American Indians) is an active member of Project CODE because we believe that all people deserve to be protected against all acts of violence. NCAI’s mission is to advocate for the protection of treaty rights, inherent rights and other rights guaranteed to tribes through agreements with the United States and under federal law; to promote the common welfare of American Indians and Alaska Natives; and to promote a better understanding of Indian peoples. This advocacy extends to all marginalized communities and continues to be a cornerstone of our allyship with numerous organizations and partners.
The National Urban League is a member of Project CODE because we recognize the power of coalition building in achieving justice. We know that political violence and extremism are detrimental to the communities we serve, our civil rights and our democracy. The effects of political extremism are felt across the country, especially in communities of color, where extremism has violent, economic and social repercussions. For these reasons, the National Urban League through its participation in Project CODE is committed to building a community of solution-finders to end the epidemic of political violence in this country.
States United Democracy Center is a nonpartisan organization connecting state and local officials, law enforcement leaders and pro-democracy partners with the tools and expertise they need to safeguard democracy. States United participates in Project CODE because keeping voters and election officials safe from political violence is a core part of our mission to advance free, fair and secure elections.
The Truman Center supports Project CODE’s efforts to stop political violence, which is not only a major threat to America's national security, but to our global strength. America's future depends on the stability and vibrancy of our domestic institutions. Many members of the Truman Center's sister organization, the Truman National Security Project, are also deeply engaged in preventing and responding to political violence.
Western States Center is a member of Project CODE because it believes authoritarian social movements and violent extremism are a threat to inclusive democracy. We also believe it is possible to build a shared commitment to a country where elected officials, nonprofit institutions, faith leaders and ordinary citizens join together to reject the violence and antisemitic conspiracies of white nationalism and begin the important work of closing the door to political violence.
