Youth Hunger Strike For Democracy

Our Hunger Strike for Democracy relaunched on Thursday, January 13th!. We can’t win without you! Sign up to join us at

Young people are putting their bodies on the line to save our democracy.

On December 6th, 20 brave young people began an indefinite hunger strike in Phoenix, Arizona to plead that the Senate protect voting rights, end political gerrymandering, and get dark money out of politics by passing the Freedom To Vote Act this year. After meeting with Senator Sinema on Thursday, December 9th, they took their hunger strike to D.C.! On day 15, they temporarily suspended the strike when Senate Majority Leader Schumer pledged that the Senate would vote on the Freedom To Vote Act on or before MLK Day. Now, we have returned to DC and restarted our hunger strike to plead that the Senate pass the Freedom To Vote Act NOW.
