The Institute publicly released its research on the lack of confidence that voters have about today’s political leaders in a webinar for the national press on September 13, 2012. This session was hosted by Institute Executive Director Carolyn Lukensmeyer, National Board Members Senator Tom Daschle and Representative Jim Kolbe, and representatives of POS and FM3.

At the same time, the Institute launched www.YourWordsCount.org, giving voters a path for expressing their feelings, tools for holding elected leadership accountable, and the ability to effect change by engaging in grassroots efforts around the country that partner organizations submit. The Institute will reinforce this rollout by driving traffic to the website through an integrated communications strategy.
