Democracy Knitting Circle with Eve Jacobs-Carnahan

Knit Democracy Together is a modern take on historical knitting circles like those that supported the abolitionist and suffragist movements. At a time when people are losing confidence in government, this project creates a positive model of democracy.

Artist Eve Jacobs-Carnahan talks about innovative ways to finance election campaigns, how cities and states are reducing candidate reliance on private campaign money, and how these measures re-connect elected officials with their constituents and make government more accountable.
