for support of Bright Line Watch  
One of the greatest threats to democracy is the idea that it is unassailable. At a time of potential danger to American democratic norms and institutions, it is more urgent than ever for scholars to highlight the risks to our system of government. In this spirit, Bright Line Watch brings together a group of leading political scientists to monitor democratic practices, their resilience, and potential threats. Building on its core surveys, Bright Line Watch will continue to field regular expert and public surveys about the health of American democracy, as well as expand and innovate its survey modules and survey populations. In addition, Bright Line Watch will continue to organize high-profile public events and publish academic research that is broadly shared with the public.
