We are a vibrant online community of millions of people throughout the country empowered to do our part to create a world where we all can thrive.

We are a membership organization, which means we are only as strong as our members. We have a deep commitment to member listening and respecting the voices and perspectives of our members and their individual humanity. We know as staff we may not always agree with member sentiment and, while staff, we also have a responsibility to educate and move public opinion, so we try not to get too far out ahead of our members, in order to meet them where they are as we seek to move the dial together.

We are a community of millions of individuals of different ages, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, socioeconomic classes, immigration statuses, abilities, stories, and politics spread throughout every corner of this country. We come together because we don’t accept the imperfections of the world as it is, and we fight to create the world we want to see. We are not a monolith, and we don’t necessarily know each other, but we join together to fight for one another and in solidarity with those with less privilege than ourselves.

We are a political home. No matter where you live, you can find people who will fight for you here. We are all welcome, we all belong, and we take care of one another. We foster a space where we listen to, learn from, and grow with one another. We come together inspired by our shared sense of higher purpose and our commitment to humanity.

We are a grand experiment in living the vision we work to advance out in the world: a vision of a society that embraces multiracial populism, racial justice, and equity. We join together across identities and bring our respective causes to this space so that we can leverage our collective power to benefit us all.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
