Making Democracy Count: Changing U.S. Voting Culture

It was moderated by Archon Fung, a professor at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, who presented data from Princeton’s Martin Gilens about the lawmakers’ lack of responsiveness to public opinion — except when it comes to the opinion of the wealthiest 10% in America. Fascinating. Kathryn Peters, Co-founder and COO of Democracy Works, and their TurboVote tool, had some really interesting things to say. And reps from Lyft and Patagonia talked about how they are supporting the public and their employees to vote on election day.
