A vibrant democracy depends upon an effective government that listens to and acts on the will of the people. But in these polarized times, many Americans lack confidence in the future of the country.

In this season of “After the Fact,” we explore how The Pew Charitable Trusts is using data to make a difference and helping communities thrive. We also highlight the state of democracy and its underlying principles through interviews with experts and leaders of organizations working to rebuild trust and create a better future.
