The program seeks to bring the ideal of representative self-government closer to reality, by eliminating barriers to full and equal political participation and by striving to ensure that public policy and institutions represent and reflect the diverse voices and interests that make for a rich and energetic democracy. Project areas include voting rights and elections, money in politics, fair courts, redistricting, and government dysfunction.
