2022 BROWN DEMOCRACY MEDAL PRESENTATION
Recognizing the threat to democracy, Joanna Lydgate, Norm Eisen, and Christine Todd Whitman joined forces to help states protect the 2020 election. Since then, they have formed the States United Democracy Center, a nonprofit organization committed to a bipartisan, state-focused defense of democracy. With legal, research, and communications expertise, States United supports state and local leaders as they protect elections, coordinate with law enforcement to prevent political violence, pursue accountability for those who step outside of the bounds of democracy, and counter election disinformation. Lydgate, Eisen, and Whitman are the winners of the 2022 Brown Democracy Medal for their continuing efforts to defend against the anti-democracy movement and protect the will of the American people.
