Chris Hayes, News Host at MSNBC, will be leading a dynamic discussion focusing on philanthropy’s role in enabling all U.S. citizens to engage more deeply in the information they need to participate in democracy. How can foundations support the creation of tools and knowledge that can strengthen the ability of citizens to perform their civic duties? What is philanthropy’s role in creating this capacity for a more responsive political system, especially in this election year?
Foundation-funded initiatives like Open Congress and DocumentCloud help to reveal information about government and politics, which is essential to understand how elections are waged and won, as well as how policies are crafted and executed.
All interested funders.
