Blueprints for Democracy

Actionable Reforms To Solve Our Governing Crisis

We can rebuild American democracy.

Our nation faces a governing crisis: The cost of American elections has reached an all time high, and public opinion of our institutions has reached rock bottom.

Blueprints for Democracy is designed to meet the challenge of money-in-politics reform with concrete proof – proof that Americans in cities and states all over the country can make their elections more open, their campaigns more transparent and their lawmakers more accountable.

Blueprints provides an overview of how reforms have been implemented across the country, and best practices for legislators and advocates enacting change in their local communities.
