Our approach to fixing our democracy is pragmatic — we know that lasting policy changes in Washington require crosspartisan cooperation and bridge-building. But we are bold and ambitious about our goals and hopeful that we can bring about major political reform to build a more inclusive democracy. We are entrepreneurial and work everyday to seize on opportunities to blaze new paths for reform. Learn more about Issue One.
