WASHINGTON, D.C. — Stand Up America Executive Director Christina Harvey issued the following statement after President Joe Biden’s speech on democracy in Tempe, Arizona: 

“President Biden delivered a powerful wake-up call to the American people, reminding us that democracies die when citizens ‘remain silent and fail to stand up and condemn threats to democracy’. MAGA extremism continues to represent a threat to our democracy, and the president rightly called out Donald Trump’s continued efforts to undermine our democracy and core values as a nation.

“The stakes could not be higher – democracy itself hangs in the balance. Americans across the political spectrum must come together to defend the cornerstone of our democracy: our freedom to choose our leaders.”
