About us

Protect Democracy was founded in early 2017 by a group of former high-level executive branch officials who served in the White House Counsel’s Office and upper echelons of the Department of Justice. This group has a unique knowledge of the norms that have constrained presidential power for decades and when those in power may be tempted to violate them. We have since assembled a cross-partisan staff of top-tier talent, backed by a group of some of the world’s leading experts who have studied how other democracies have declined in the 21st Century as advisers. Together with our Harvard Law School clinic, pro bono relationships with many of the country’s leading law firms, and an advisory board ranging from President Obama’s former Solicitor General to former Reagan White House officials, we have sought to protect and perfect our democratic institutions.
