In the face of sustained and alarming challenges to democracy, universal human rights, and all around the world, democracy needs champions.

The initiative hopes to build on the United States' efforts to bolster democracy around the world.

White House officials say the initiative will receive funding of up to $424.4 million.

With his final words, as he was dying, ...he reminded our country: 'Democracy is not a state, it's an act.'
