1.000,000 say „Yes!“ to Democracy

Faces of Democracy: 1 million signatories and numerous well-known people are taking a stand in the name of democracy!

For many of us, democratic achievements such as pluralism, diversity and freedom of opinion represent convictions that are written in stone. However, the increasing acceptance of protectionism and partial nationalism is shaking the foundations of our democratic values. It is high time to talk about democracy again. Since the establishment of the Faces of Democracy initiative, more than 1.000,000 people have – true to the motto “Sign for Democracy” – signed the voluntary commitment to protect and strengthen the fundamental values of a democratic civil society.

The privately organized Faces of Democracy initiative gains media attention through many well-known interviewees such as the President of the EU Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, German Federal Minister Heiko Maas, “Germany’s Got Talent” jury member Shirin David, and the President of the German Federal Constitutional Court, Prof. Andreas Voßkuhle. Together with our signatories from around the world, these are the faces of democracy. Show your face as well, say YES! to democracy and join our growing community in Germany, Europe, and around the world.
