The DI extends its warmest congratulations to Miles Rapoport on his appointment as Senior Practice Fellow in American Democracy at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at the Kennedy School at Harvard. Rapoport has been a longtime organizer and democracy defender who served as the president of Demos for 13 years before moving on to Common Cause. He also is a former secretary of the state and state legislator in Connecticut, and founded or led several citizen organizations working on political reform, consumer protection, racial equality, and economic justice issues. Rapoport will create a strong link between field work and scholarship to improve our democracy. We look forward to his work!
