Virtual Event: Strengthening America’s Democratic Credentials

America has seen significant democratic backsliding in recent years and is losing credibility as a global champion of democracy. What’s the solution? A vital first step is looking at whether the U.S. is meeting international election standards on key issues, including gerrymandering, impartial and independent election administration, and participation by the broadest possible pool of eligible voters in transparent, safe, and secure elections.
