Learn how to bring democracy reform to your hometown


Learn how to bring democracy reform to your hometown

Our democracy works best when we have a government responsive to the people.  

That means we need our democratic process to be transparent, inclusive and accountable. This toolkit provides the information you need to achieve solutions that promote these ideals in your community.  

As Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once said, states are the laboratories of democracy, experimenting with new ideas that might deliver a more representative government. YOU, as a leader in your community, can use these resources to spark meaningful change.  

Since our inception, by employing the expertise of thought leaders across the country, CLC has put the best of these solutions to work on the ground. The solutions described in this toolkit are strictly nonpartisan. They are well researched and tested, in multiple communities with various needs. And since we know the challenges to improve democracy are constantly changing, we’ll keep returning to these resources to add the most recent success stories, statistics and insights. You can count on us to make sure you’re working with the most updated information possible. 

If you have questions on anything from a specific policy proposal to a general inquiry, just e-mail us.
