Detailing the Response: Democracy in Action

Solutions Journalism Network

From France to Seattle to Tennessee, communities are working to engage citizens in the democratic process from every imaginable angle. This collection showcases solutions stories that dig into the details of the responses they highlight, showing you exactly how the governments, organizations, and individuals behind these initiatives achieved success. The problems they aim to tackle vary, whether it be increasing voter turnout among marginalized populations, diversifying candidate pools for local offices, or cutting out the middle man between people and policy. But these responses also have something crucial in common: they champion inclusivity and community-driven change.
