Democracy In Poverty

Democracy in Poverty: A View from Below

In 2012-2013, Weeks travelled across the United States on a poverty-line budget of $16 per day as part of a research project to better understand firsthand how the challenges facing America's poorest populations affect their ability to engage in the democratic process. His experiences are being published in a Carsey report in September as well as recent articles in The Atlantic.

Daniel Weeks is a fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University and executive director of Open Democracy, a nonpartisan nonprofit working to expand political voice and participation in the Granite State.
