Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity filling up

Voting is the heart of democracy. Many have fought, and are still fighting, for the right to vote. And, casting a ballot is just one piece of our political process. In order for democracy to thrive, we have to think about how it fits into our broader civic life. How do we make sure elections aren’t the only time people get engaged? And what happens when people become disconnected or disheartened from our decision-making processes? The good news: these innovators, who are encouraging Americans to get hands-on with democracy through the ballot box and beyond, are here to share their insights and concrete strategies for action.
