How Broken is Our Democracy


Tuesday, June 1, 2010, 1:00pm to 5:00pm


Brookings Institution, Washington, D.C.

Since the beginning of the Obama administration, our nation has experienced vigorous policy debates about the great challenges of health care and the economic crisis. At the same time, the way these debates have unfolded has brought forward another important issue: the health and future of our democracy itself.

Join us for a special half-day conference to discuss the key issues at stake in our democracy. Panelists will explore the priorities that should be front and center over the coming year; examine the possibilities of a unified agenda for democratic reform; and discuss ways of creating and strengthening a movement for a vibrant and inclusive democracy.

You can listen to the seminar here.
