Reclaim the American Dream

We're a New Kind of Website – an informational gateway aimed at helping people who are upset about America today to get engaged in fixing our democracy and making our economy fairer at the local level, where people power still has clout. Lots of Americans are very unhappy but they don't know what to do. They need an entry point that opens the door to multiple pathways for reform. So we've created an easily accessible, journalistic-style website to answer questions that we've heard from audiences all over this country. Unlike many other sites, we are not pushing one pet issue or one particular strategy. We introduce you to multiple issues, multiple strategies, multiple organizations that can help you start a reform movement in your own community or join forces with others.
News. Community. Debate. Levers for better democracy.
