The Democracy Solutions Project

A partnership between the University of Chicago’s Center for Effective Government and Chicago Public Media, this multi-part, multimedia series will take a solutions-oriented approach to reporting on the critical issues facing American democracy today. Through stories, listening experiences, opinion pieces and news from the Chicago Sun-Times and WBEZ, we’ll examine the current threats to our democracy, including barriers to voting, cynicism, misinformation, polarization and much more.
