Innovating American Politics: Reimagining Democracy in the Digital Age

As the 2024 Presidential election cycle kicks off, the United States seems to be at an inflection point. That wonderful experiment that began 235 years ago at the Philadelphia Convention, which was to be by the people and for the people, has become under-productive and highly dysfunctional. So how do we fix it? How do we make our democracy healthier? How do we change our government so it works better? How do we innovate our politics?

Join us on March 4 for a panel discussion, featuring Andrew Yang, Anthony Scaramucci, Charles Wheelan, and Beth Simone Noveck, where we will try to determine how we can innovate our political system and reimagine our democracy for the digital age. There will also be opportunity for networking at a reception.
