A framework for an inclusive democracy

Howard University - Blackburn Center| 2397 6th St NW │ Washington DC │December 6th, 2016

Conference Registration

We will examine the ways in which our democracy is failing people and communities -- and what can be done to restore our democracy. We will focus on highlighting places and battles where people are standing up and winning, policies that will make a difference, and how we can win real reform. This is the fourth annual conference sponsored by Common Cause with a generous grant from the WhyNot Initiative. For more information about the conference, please email Keshia Morris at kmorris@commoncause.org.
