Author and advocate Susan Clark explains the Slow Democracy movement in which ordinary people mobilize to find local solutions to local problems. In the process some find they can bridge the “us-them” divide so prevalent in our national politics.

Susan Clark is a writer and educator focusing on community sustainability and engagement. She is the coauthor of Slow Democracy: Rediscovering Community, Bringing Decision Making Back Home, with Woden Teachout; and All Those in Favor, a book about Vermont town meetings, with Frank Bryan.
