Independent Voter Project

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has" -Margaret Mead

Chad Peace came to my classroom with a few of his equally enthusiastic staff to speak first hand about the legal recourse IVP was taking as well as through IVN providing an objective news platform which is all amazing. I feel like with the current figures of about a 14% approval rating for congress and a 95% or so re-election rate of incumbents, people are frustrated but don't know what to do... until now (:

    I could not agree more, it does feels like “political parties are shuffling the chairs around” with gerrymandering. Luckily with leaders taking action liking Chad Peace and Jeff Marston more and more people who are waking up to the reality of the disconnect in representation, will know how to be involved (: Way to continue the dialogue!
