“Mark Green and Michele Jolin look to 2009 as the beginning of an era of renewal and progressive governance in America. Change for America presciently and insightfully offers specific ideas for what our next President can do to revitalize our nation and restore our standing abroad.” — President Bill Clinton
It was an election about change, but how will that change actually happen?
The result of a collaboration between the Center for American Progress Action Fund (the advocacy arm of Washington’s leading-edge progressive think-tank led) and the New Democracy Project’s Mark Green, this comprehensive volume is written by over sixty leading policymakers, scholars and advocates.
Based on four core values — of democracy, security through diplomacy, opportunity and a greener world — Change for America offers scores of solutions how to repair our broken government and create an enduring progressive era.
