As Obama Urges Action, Progressive Movement Mobilizes on Democracy Reform

The President last week issued a forceful call to reduce barriers to voting, implement automatic voter registration (AVR), change the way our districts are drawn, and seek reasonable limits on the influence of “dark money”. The Brennan Center’s Democracy Agenda backs up this talk with detailed policy proposals to tackle these challenges head-on. And these goals are aligned closely with the work of the Democracy Fund, which has elevated AVR and rights restoration of the formerly incarcerated as top priorities.
