Overview
The New America Foundation has long diagnosed fundamental failings in the American political process — originally the absence of ideas that don’t fit established partisan agendas, and later the political system’s failure to engage with long-term priorities. In 2014, the foundation launched a new program on political reform, directed by Mark Schmitt. This work has evolved to include work on campaign finance and electoral reform, congressional capacity; race, identity, and political realignment; civic engagement; and more. This grant will support an expansion of the Political Reform program, including continued research, journalism, convenings, and fellowships at New America.
