Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE-Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, and Nick Penniman, the Executive Director of the Fund for the Republic, recently published an article that proposed creating a second, trans-partisan, front for democracy reform in America. The evidence has become overwhelming clear, there are no defenders left of our current system for financing and running campaigns and elections. Republicans and Democrats agree that the system is broken, voters are so disgusted that many of them cite the system for the reason why they don’t vote, and business leaders make it clear that the time has come for a change.
Why is it then that there seems to be so little progress in creating a movement for democratic and political reform?
Two issues seem to be at the core of this disconnect. First, while voters of every stripe are concerned and even alarmed about our current system of financing and running campaigns, they also don’t think that their voice can make a difference. Second, many view the fight for democratic reform as a partisan one, with each side proposing reforms that will game the system for their side.
So, is it possible to transform this issue into a bi-partisan and trans-partisan one that unites the country around a desire to make their democracy more responsible and more responsive? And can philanthropy play a role in bringing the various actors together around a shared agenda of reform?
These are the questions that will be posed during this special PACE webinar, we hope you will join us on September 26th at 2pm Eastern time.
