Below is one of the nine problems and fixes that the Walking to Fix Our Democracy project has identified. Visit the website at to read the entire list.

Problem: Congress isn't working for most people. Our political system gives many incentives to act in ways that place their own re-election interests, those of their wealthy and influential campaign funders, and those of their political party above the common, broad interests of the American people.

Fix: Reform our political process to get more competition, more turnover, and better representation for our common good and the future of our nation. Work with others to support those in Congress willing to pass national standards, including the For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, DC Statehood, and a Constitutional Amendment to transform our political system and move our country closer to realizing the true promise of democracy.
