Now more than ever, we need tangible solutions to fix our broken political system. On this podcast, we’ll bring you the most thought-provoking, inspiring, and solutions-orientated conversations on topics including gerrymandering, ranked choice voting, rights restoration, and more. These panels were presented at Unrig Summit 2019, the nation’s largest convening of the brightest minds from the left and the right seeking to unrig the system.
Unrig Summit 2019 brought together over two thousand people from all fifty states in Nashville, Tennessee to celebrate 2018’s historic victories for the democracy reform movement—and to connect, inspire, train, and organize the movement for years to come. To find out more about Unrig Summit, the democracy reform movement, and how you can get involved, go to unrigsummit.com.
