In order to protect our democracy in a time of globally growing authoritarianism, we must engage thoughtfully but with energy in working to strengthen the franchise, fight voter suppression, ensure fair courts and fight for transparency and fairness in our political system. Caroline Fredrickson, author of The Democracy Fix and Under the Bus, discusses how these tenets are crucial in keeping the United States’ political system a government that is by the people and for the people.
