Do you ever feel like we're on the brink of a democracy apocalypse? Then you need a Democracy Survival Kit from National Priorities Project, with everything you need to prevail against the worst challenges facing our democracy today.
A chance to win this awesome kit is yours when you make a gift towards our goal to raise 1,000 gifts of just $10 (or more!) by July 14. You'll help keep our researchers cranking, our data geeks number-crunching, and our writers making information available to people like you – all in the spirit of saving our democracy.
NPP very recently updated all its Federal Priorities Database expenditures and indicators to the state level with the latest data available.
We invite you to use the database – especially if you want a post-election memory of the impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). See what funding states received in 2009 for job creation, housing, food security work and more.
It's essential that people in our nation hold on to a belief in government as an agent for the common good. Let's tell the truth, everyone wants economic recovery. The questions this November morning are who will shape it and who will benefit.
NPP urges you to use our materials to make sense of our nation's budget budget. An engaged and informed public is more critical than ever in the fight for a broad-based economic recovery that will benefit all people.
Wild-fire mis-information about federal spending is as concerning as the role of unbridled big money in politics. In the coming weeks, we will be bombarded by a host of dangerous rhetoric about tax cuts, jobs, deficits.
Stay tuned: NPP is releasing our latest Data for Democracy Webinar: Jobs, Deficits and Taxes tomorrow. Sign up for 30 minutes that will demystify the three most pressing issues of our time.
The Federal Budget. It's ours. Own it. Or somebody else will.
