Government & Court Reform

American government is consumed by hyper partisanship and paralysis. Key realms, such as the courts, increasingly are at risk of domination by special interest money. How can we make our systems of government work better? And how can we ensure they honor our fundamental national values, by working well for all Americans? 

The Brennan Center is committed to finding innovative reforms to revitalize the often ramshackle systems of democracy and justice. We support fair and impartial courts to promote equal justice and the rule of law. We fight to end government dysfunction and gridlock by curbing filibuster abuse and advocating an effective U.S. Congress. And we champion a transparent, nonpartisan redistricting process that provides fair and meaningful representation.
