After a polarizing four years, a Capitol riot, and a contentious election, systemic political reforms feel more essential than ever. Fortunately, there is new hope for political reform in 2021. In this episode we discuss why the last four years were not hospitable to systemic reforms, why we expect the next four years to be better, and specifically where the movement for a campaign finance reform amendment goes from here. We also consider why Congressional Republicans are so different than Republican voters. And provide an update on how you can get involved in the fight for a campaign finance reform amendment.
