On May 19, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) hosted the event, “Revitalizing Democracy in 2022: a Conversation with Author John Raidt” about Raidt’s new book, “Politics, Inc.: America’s Troubled Democracy and How to Fix It.”

During the event, Raidt discussed how our democracy came to be so politically divided, the factors that continue to exacerbate the problem, and what we can all do to help create a stronger democratic structure to make our government work better for the American people.

No matter what we look like or where we live, our democracy should work on behalf of us all, not just self-interested politicians and special interests.
