All of the challenges facing our democracy todayâ€¦ problems with the electoral college, gerrymandering, voter suppression, lack of representation, voter disinterest, citizens who cannot vote, lobbying, moneyâ€¦lead to two questions: why doesn't every vote really count? And what are we going to do about it?
Author Elizabeth Rusch examines some of the more problematic aspects of our government but, more importantly, offers ways for young people to fix them.
The political landscape has never been so tumultuous: issues with the electoral college, gerrymandering, voter suppression, and a lack of representation in the polls and in our leadership have led to Americans of all ages asking, How did we get here?
The power to change lies with the citizens of this great countryâ€”especially teens! Rather than pointing fingers at people and political parties, You Call This Democracy? looks at flaws in the systemâ€”and offers a real way out of the mess we are in. Each chapter breaks down a different problem plaguing American democracy, exploring how itâ€™s undemocratic, offering possible solutions (with examples of real-life teens who have already started working toward them), and suggesting ways to effect changeâ€”starting NOW!
