Join the Reilly Center to learn more about "Hope for Democracy: How Citizens Can Bring Reason Back Into Politics"

About this Event

Democracies were founded on the role of citizen led government. As politics have evolved, many citizens feel left behind by the political process. In her book with co-author Dr. John Gastil, Manship Alumna Dr. Katie Knobloch highlights the creation and implementation of the Citizens’ Initiative Review (CIR) as a permanent governing body in Oregon. “Hope for Democracy: How Citizens Can Bring Reason Back Into Politics,” features citizen activists who developed the CIR and key participants at the inaugural CIR. Currently working on creating more community based projects that center the citizen in politics, Dr. Knobloch will join the Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs for a virtual event to discuss the book, her passion for centering the citizen in politics, and how young people view their role in the political process.
