Host Kimberly Mitchem-Rasmussen will be joined by Lorelei Kelly to discuss the dysnfuction in Congress. Lorelei is the founder or director of five projects in Washington, D.C. with the purpose of system-level change in information flows between Congress and American citizens. She joined the New America Foundation's Open Technology Institute to pilot Smart Congress — a de-centralized system of expert knowledge and civic participation methods to modernize Congress and increase evidence-based decision making. OTI’s mission is to build a peaceful, connected and open global public square for the 21st Century. Lorelei is a civil-military expert, and — during this time of transition — is looking at the governance implications of distributed power, including the limits of military force. She is examining the requirements of a security strategy for civil society, i.e. privacy, the right to be connected and how citizens can better spend their social capital for political power. Lorelei has degrees from Grinnell College and Stanford University.
