This session is from Common Cause’s third annual Blueprint for a Great Democracy conference. Over the course of these two days, we examine the ways in which our democracy is failing people and communities. We focus on highlighting places and battles where people are standing up and winning, and policies that will make a difference. This is the third annual conference sponsored by Common Cause with a generous grant from the WhyNot Initiative.
