The Fast for Democracy is a call to all who believe in "one person, one vote" political equality to pledge to use their vote this November and support pro-democracy candidates who will fight for reform to end corruption.

    SIGN THE DEMOCRACY VOTER PLEDGE

    As we enter the final weeks of a midterm election that is almost certain to be marked by the most big money spent and the lowest voter turnout in American history, we who believe in “one person, one vote” political equality must exercise our right to vote and support candidates who will defend our democracy.

    Kai Newkirk and other 99Rise leaders are fasting until at least 28,000 Americans (after the 28th Amendment for which we fight) sign the pledge to stand against corruption and vote in support of pro-democracy candidates this November.

    As we enter the final weeks of a midterm election that is almost certain to be marked by the most big money spent and the lowest voter turnout in American history, Kai Newkirk and other 99Rise leaders have begun a water-only fast to demonstrate the serious urgency of this crisis and call people to action.

    We cannot sit out an election when the forces of corruption are working as never before to solidify their grip on our government and our country.

    Kai began fasting in Los Angeles on Saturday, October 18th and others are joining the fast in California and across the country since then. The fast will continue until at least 28,000 people (after the 28th Amendment for which we fight) sign the Democracy Voter Pledge or the polls close on November 4th.

    We need your help! Fill out the form below and join us in mobilizing the pro-democracy vote in this critical election!
