Concerned Citizens Defending Democracy (CCDD)

Inspired and organized by Bridges, Concerned Citizens Defending Democracy (CCDD) is a network of citizens from several parts of the country concerned with the state of democracy and race relations in the United States.  


It began meeting in early 2020, initially with a focus on free and fair elections. However, after the murder of George Floyd laid bare the urgent need for active citizen involvement in civic life, CCDD determined that strengthening American democracy and promoting racial justice and reconciliation would be the twin pillars of its work.

CCDD has its own website!

"Concerned Citizens Defending Democracy is an organization that believes in leadership and accountability of leaders and citizens. This organization has exemplified commitment and loyalty to our Constitution and Democracy. CCDD will continue to fight for our democracy."
