*This program is hosted by our partner, Funders' Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP), who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.*
Our current elections require systemic reforms to increase voter participation, counter racial and partisan gerrymandering, overcome zero-sum polarization, and advance a reflective and representative democracy. Ranked choice voting (RCV) and Fair Representation reforms, including when used in multi-winner districts, address these challenges and can help build a culture of participation and broad engagement that uplifts the power of diverse and marginalized communities to make a difference on issues that impact their lives.
- How new RCV and Fair Representation is being pushed at more local and state levels
