What’s required to enact meaningful democratic reaforms to assure the U.S. has a democracy governed by “We the People,” not “We the Wealthy” or “We the Corporations”? Formal presentations will be followed by an audience Q-and-A and a discussion of ways citizens can become more involved with the movement to support effective democratic processes.
