: The Health of State Democracies: Liberty and Justice for All?
Please join the Center for American Progress Action Fund as it launches a new report on the health of state democracies.
The U.S. Constitution guarantees certain rights and privileges within our democracy. In practice, however, the extent to which citizens experience the robust benefits of a truly democratic society is too often determined by decisions made at the state level. Examining the areas of accessibility of the ballot, strength of representation in state government, and influence in the political system, “The Health of State Democracies” report contends that these issues must be addressed in sum—and no longer in silos.
Join the Center for American Progress Action Fund for a panel discussion with state policymakers and other democracy experts as they speak to the challenges and opportunities ahead—from in-state legislative and ballot measure campaigns, to removing structural barriers so that voters truly have a voice in the democratic process, to a broader look at the need to address these issues as a comprehensive package of pro-democracy reforms.
