Purple is a non-partisan coalition, campaign and movement. We span the breadth of American society to rediscover and recommit to our democratic values and institutions. It begins this November with a media and education campaign of unprecedented scope that will illuminate and dramatize the many glories of American democracy. WHY WE NEED TO ACT Some 23% of American millennials say that democracy is a “bad way” or “very bad way” to run the country.* More than 29% of the public recently expressed support for either a “strong leader” or “army rule”.** From 2017 to 2018, US citizens’ trust for government, business, non-governmental organizations and the free press plummeted 37%.*** Among 1400 young adults asked about the importance of democracy, only 39% said “absolutely important.” **** HOW WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE No matter the politics of the day, American democracy demands participation, and suffers amid indifference and mistrust. The fall Purple campaign will be the leading edge of a movement to promote and reward citizen engagement in our communities at every level. Choose an analogy: Are we a refresher course, reminding us of how a democratic society functions? Yes. Are we a playlist of content that tells the American story? Yes. Are we engineers, aspiring to nothing less than a new social norm for active citzenship? Yes. Are we a marriage encounter, helping us simply to fall in love with our democracy again? Yes. Maybe that above all. Along the way, we are literally building a brand, a Purple banner of proud participation to be hoisted by the many organizations and individuals already committed to the mutual goal of restoring faith in the American Way. That bears repeating: restoring faith in the American Way. There is hardly in the world a more pressing need. And there is surely no more worthy goal.

Gerris Corp is proud to support Purple Project for Democracy with Pro-Bono Services
We at believe in the ideal of our democratic republic and what is has offered America and Americans in various forms of freedom-for-all over the course of the last 243 years. I believe that Purple Project for Democracy is not only a diff check (a program that compares files in order to determine how or whether they differ) but attempt to either reboot democracy or at least rollback the divisiveness, suspicion, resentment and violent hatred that each half of the country has for the other.
