A non-partisan informational gateway, created by journalist and author Hedrick Smith, aimed at helping people get engaged in fixing our democracy and making our economy fairer at the local level, where people power still has clout.
Unlike many other sites, we are not pushing one pet issue or one particular strategy. We introduce you to multiple issues, multiple strategies, multiple organizations that can help you start a reform movement in your own community or join forces with others.
Our target audience is the mass of frustrated civic-minded Americans and local groups, from seniors to millennials, from nonprofit volunteers to the politically disenchanted, people who want change but don’t know where to start.
Our goal is to inform and arm thoughtful people with briefings on reform issues, progress reports on actions already under way, success stories from other states, plus a docket of organizations and experts offering advice and support.
