Voters want policymakers who reflect all of America so that Democracy can work for all of us. The only way it will change is if the American people demand it. If you think the problem will fix itself, look at women, who have always been half the population and yet make up around 30% of the political appointee workforce. Imagine if the federal government was 50% women and 40% people of color. Would we have the policies of today that disproportionately and negatively affect women and people of color? True change won’t come until we change the face of power.
