In this confusing and tumultuous election season, at least one thing has become clear: Millions of Americans feel unheard, unseen and disregarded. They do not trust traditional politics to represent them, and they want a greater voice in the decisions that affect their lives.

For forty years, Public Agenda has been committed to ensuring that the public's voice and values are at the forefront of change. Join us for an exciting post-election dialogue that explores how politics--at the national and local levels--can become more responsive to people's needs and give them more meaningful and powerful roles in our democracy.

This event will include a networking breakfast, panel discussion and audience Q&A.

Participants will include:

Moderator

Geraldine Moriba
Executive Producer Program Development and Vice President Diversity and Inclusion, CNN

Panelists

Carolyne Abdullah
Director of Strengthening Democratic Capacity Team, Everyday Democracy

Brad Lander
Councilmember, New York City Council

Matt Leighninger
Vice President of Public Engagement, Public Agenda
