Americans are coming together and seeking solutions to some of the most intractable problems facing our democracy. A growing number of women have taken the lead at democracy reform organizations that are setting the tone for the next major wave of reforms. Their efforts are modernizing our political system and creating a 21st century democracy that works for us all. Common Cause and allies held a discussion featuring several of the democracy movement's leading women, including Common Cause's recently-named President, Karen Hobert Flynn, to examine the state of the national debate on democracy.
