our democracy

The Democracy Solutions Project

Through stories, listening experiences, opinion pieces and news, WBEZ and the Chicago Sun-Times will take a solutions-oriented approach to reporting on the critical issues facing American democracy today. The yearlong special project — in partnership with the University of Chicago’s Center for Effective Government, with funding support from the Pulitzer Center — examines the current threats to our democracy, including barriers to voting, cynicism, misinformation, polarization and much more.
