Partisan animosity is at a high. Is progress still possible?

Launched in 2014, the Hewlett Foundation’s Madison Initiative focuses on strengthening democracy and its institutions – Congress, in particular – to be more effective in a polarized age.

The initiative is nonpartisan in its approach and supports organizations across the ideological spectrum – think tanks, advocacy groups, academic researchers and civic leadership organizations  – who seek to understand and improve the political system so that our elected representatives are better equipped to solve society’s greatest problems.

Watch the video to hear from the National Institute for Civil Discourse, the Millennial Action Project, New Politics Academy and the Faith and Politics Institute – a few of our many grantees that are actively working to break through dysfunction so that principled leaders can come together to get things done.
