Introducing the Scholars Strategy Network

We have recently forged a relationship with The Scholars Strategy Network so that we may provide our supporters with great academic thinking on issues of the day.  Founded by our friend and Partner, Bob Bowditch, the Scholars Strategy Network brings together many of America's leading scholars to address pressing public challenges at the national, state, and local levels. As progressive-minded citizens, SSN members spell out the democratic and policy implications of their research in ways that are broadly accessible. 

Avi Green serves as Outreach Director and recently told me of the work SSN did in support of Filibuster Reform in the US Senate. One of SSN's scholars - Thomas Mann of the Brookings Institute - was quickly able to get the facts out about Filibuster Reform and push back on the notion that it was a radical mistake on the part of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Pick a topic and check out SSN's pithy and fact-filled writings.
