The Current Struggle
Today, our democracy is struggling through one of the most politically divisive periods in our nation’s history.

Dr. Mathews is president and CEO of the Kettering Foundation, an international research institution which studies what it takes to make democracy work as it should. This past year, he delivered the closing remarks at Kettering’s “National Issues Forum” in Washington, DC. The topic of his address was political division.
