Widely considered the most robust democracy innovation in the world, hear from the Founder about why democracy is broken and how a growing band of global democracy warriors are taking on governments all over the world with a ten year goal of being the largest single branded political movement on earth, winning seats in 50 global parliaments and emancipating the voice of 3 billion people.
