Reflective Democracy in the News

The Reflective Democracy Campaign is back in the news: the Campaign’s research was cited in the New York Times‘ “On Politics” column about the symbolism and real policy advantages to having a woman of color as Vice President. Our grantee And She Could be Next, a two-part documentary series on female history makers filmed by women filmmakers of color, was also mentioned in the article!

The Campaign’s director Brenda Choresi Carter was interviewed by Fair and Accuracy in Reporting’s podcast Counterspin about their latest report. Calling sheriffs “possibly the most troubling elected office in America,” Brenda explains how little accountability and oversight sheriffs face.

The Reflective Democracy Campaign was founded by WDN on the belief that we won’t achieve real democracy until all of us are reflected in the halls of power. Now we’re at the forefront of the growing movement for leaders who truly reflect the American people.
