One of the largest civil disobedience actions in a generation is coming to Capitol Hill in April of 2016.

More than 2,000 individuals from around the country, including Gaby Hoffman, Mark Ruffalo, and Larry Lessig, have joined Democracy Spring and pledged to risk arrest in a massive, peaceful sit-in in the U.S. Capitol.
