RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Leaders and thinkers across the country are in Raleigh for a discussion on what needs to change in the United States.

More than 40 policy, politics and technology leaders are attending the “Redesigning Democracy” at The Institute for Emerging Issues at North Carolina State University.

The two-day event kicked off on Sunday with a panel discussion that included prominent anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist and Joan Blades, co-founder of MoveOn.org.

Former state Supreme Court Justice Bob Orr and University of North Carolina President Tom Ross are expected to participate in Monday’s sessions.
