CIVIC INNOVATORS

The Future of Local Democracy – In recent years, cities have stepped forward to lead national and international innovation in areas such as gun control, paid family leave, and climate change. At the same time, state legislatures have more aggressively deployed their powers of pre-emption to nullify city ordinances. These conflicts call into question dynamics of American federalism. What are the different sides of this issue, and how can cities lead within the law?
