Federal Reform: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

About the Session

In 2021, events conspired to provide the democracy reform movement with a small window to pass an unprecedented package of reforms to strengthen representation, significantly reduce the power of money in our politics, and provide a robust response to growing anti-democratic sentiment. By January 2022, that effort failed when two Democrats chose the filibuster over democracy.

What happened? And what chances, if any, remain at moving any significant democracy reforms at the federal level? What does this mean for state based reforms?

Our panel of experts will answer these questions and more during this fast paced hour-long event.
