      EVENT DETAILS
      OLLI at UVM How to Rescue Our Representative Democracy with Rick Hubbard

      Discuss why large numbers of Americans feel we have major, well-documented, problems with the structure and financing of our political system that result in improper representation of broad citizen interests by Congress.

      Analyze, collaborate, and strategize with audience response technology (you’ll each be loaned an iClicker device) to record and present the audience’s judgments about the following:

      How serious are powerful threats to diminish or lose our form of democracy?
      What current practices prevent proper representation?
      Is real reform most likely to come from Congress, the U.S. Supreme Court, or from citizens and legislatures through Article V as provided by our Founders?
      Is effective reform by statute or by constitutional amendment more likely?
      Is it fixable without collaboration across all ideologies?
      What must effective reform include?

      Cost: Free -
