澳门网赌正规网址平台伙伴关系 launches new initiative to strengthen Congress

2021年7月21日

国会联盟, 一个新的, 无党派的倡议, strives to build a Congress that earns the public trust by more effectively listening, 有效领导和立法.

华盛顿- 非营利性,无党派 澳门网赌正规网址平台伙伴关系 今天宣布推出 国会议员联盟, 一个新的 initiative dedicated to helping Congress become a more effective institution by investing in its own capacity to tackle big issues facing the nation and to better serve the public good. 

随着联盟的成立, the 澳门网赌正规网址平台伙伴关系 is building on its mission to make government work better for our diverse nation. This 无党派的倡议 will help Congress deliver results on critical issues, 在两党支持下通过立法, foster collaboration between the legislative and executive branches and cultivate a professional, 专注和多样化的员工队伍. 国会联盟 will also drive forward-looking solutions and build on what Congress does well so that is better equipped to meet the challenges of today and in the future. 

“To maintain a strong democracy that meets all of our needs, 我们的政府, 包括国会和行政部门, 必须更好的工作,” said Max Stier, president and CEO of the 澳门网赌正规网址平台伙伴关系.

国会联盟 comes at a critical time. The political parties and the country are deeply divided, public trust in Congress and government as a whole are near all-time lows, and the nation continues to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, 经济动荡, racial inequality and the aftermath of the violent January 6 attack on the Capitol.

“国会正处于一个转折点,” 说金牛. “The symptoms of polarization and the dysfunction in the House and Senate are ubiquitous, and it has resulted in a dynamic that makes it extremely difficult for members of Congress to be effective stewards of the institution in which they serve.”

公牛继续说道, “每天, members of Congress and their staff are addressing our country’s urgent problems under difficult circumstances. 然而, these enormous long-standing and emerging challenges demand that we rebuild the capacity of Congress. 国会联盟 will help the legislative branch strive toward a future w在这里 our diverse nation feels well-served and represented by a governing body that effectively solves problems.”

Working collaboratively with individuals and organizations, the Alliance will offer insights into why a well-functioning Congress matters, 认识到它擅长什么, 提高新的和多样化的声音, foster forward-looking conversations on diversity, equity and inclusion when it comes to people who serve in Congress and the policy decisions they make, and provide critical resources to lawmakers and staff to help them build a more effective institution.

国会联盟 will focus on three key areas of work:

  • 资源: 为国会议员和工作人员配备工具, data and constructive recommendations so the institution can become more responsive to the needs of constituents.
  • 连接: Amplify and support the efforts of allies working to strengthen Congress and serve as a collaborative partner in the broader effort to empower the House and Senate to deliver results for the public.
  • 识别: Advocate for the institution and tell the stories of the people who solve problems and promote a future-focused vision of Congress that better serves our diverse and changing nation. 

“Strengthening Congress will require action on many fronts, and it is only possible by working with a diverse group of organizations and individuals who are committed to supporting a well-functioning Congress,” said Jeff McNichols, director of the 国会议员联盟. “通过扩大我们盟友的努力, the 国会议员联盟 aims to help Congress honor its mission and work to improve its capacity to better serve the public good.”

与该倡议的启动一起, the 国会议员联盟 today released its first research report, “Serving the People: Congressional Staff Perspectives.” The new study examines how congressional staff view the effectiveness of Congress. While staff are passionate about their jobs and committed to public service, the report found that they see the legislative body as poorly functioning, slow to adapt to change and missing opportunities to improve its diversity. The report, however, also found areas of success and opportunities for growth. 点击 在这里 阅读完整报告.
