We’re looking for short, provocative media submissions designed to spark a national conversation about how we can all come together to strengthen American democracy.

If you are an independent media maker, investigative reporter, student, graphic designer, artist – or anyone with creative ideas to help engage Americans and shift the political discussion in a fresh and engaging way, then use your creativity to share your vision of how to make government work to improve our nation, our communities, and our lives.
