Lawrence Lessig - They Don't Represent Us: Reclaiming Our Democracy

Upcoming Event
Friday, November 22, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In this non-partisan analysis of today’s political divisiveness, Lessig identifies unrepresentativeness as the one problem that underlies the others. He sees it both in institutions—such as the media’s response to narrow interests rather than to those of the wider citizenry—and in the people, who are uninformed about the issues. Lessig, host of the podcast Another Way, co-founder of Creative Commons, and Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, proposes a number of solutions to fix both the “them” and the “us,” ranging from Electoral College reforms to new forums that offer citizens the chance to speak in an informed and deliberative way.
