Does Democracy Work?

Or are we setting ourselves up for failure? The 2018–19 Jepson Leadership Forum hosts politicians, political advisors, and experts on poverty, elections, and technology for a case study of American democracy.

We’ll explore the good, bad, and ugly of U.S. politics and government as we ask the question “Does democracy actually work?”

Follow us @JepsonSchool and be part of the #JepsonForum conversation.
