Change Elections to Change America
by Jay R. Mandle and Joan D. Mandle

Change Elections to Change America documents the 13 year history of Democracy Matters – the nonprofit founded by former NBA player Adonal Foyle to fight the takeover of our democracy by wealthy campaign contributors. Since 2001, Democracy Matters has grown into a vibrant national organization engaging thousands of students on campuses throughout the United States. This insightful book shows how a modern progressive social movement can succeed. Face-to-face dialogue and engagement, together with the powerful tools of social media, define movement building in the digital age. This book and the Democracy Matters experience will inspire many more of us to do the challenging work that democratizing politics in the United States requires.
