What is the American Institutions Network?

The American Institutions Network project, based at the R Street Institute, is an ideologically diverse network of civil society organizations and individuals committed to strengthening our constitutional system of checks and balances.

Why do we think this project is important?

The American Institutions Network has the potential to be a key element in civil society’s response to constitutional crises that may arise. As a bipartisan network of organizations and individuals, it will be well-situated to come together to educate Congress and the public about threats that may be posed to our system of checks and balances.

How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting the American Institutions Network?

In 2017, Democracy Fund Voice approved a two-year grant of $320,000 to R Street Institute to facilitate expansion and coordination of the American Institutions Network.
