Abstract:

The author argues that democracy is broken because there is no clear pathway between people with problems, policymaking, and the effect of policies on people. She offers an example of successful work by a grassroots organization and states that more funding is needed for such efforts.

This essay is from "The Future of Social Change," a seminar of CLAL's Jewish Public Forum held May 20-21, 2002 in New York City, which brought together a dozen leaders in social advocacy, philanthropy and the arts.
