Partner Event: Live from the Frontlines: Protecting American Democracy, a Conversation with Journalist Ari Berman
State voter suppression laws, hyperpartisan racial gerrymandering, extreme actors taking control of election administration, and the Supreme Court’s recent decisions are threatening our democracy and laying the foundation for minority rule. In January, the Senate sidelined federal voting rights legislation that would have addressed these attacks, choosing to protect the filibuster over the right of millions of Americans to cast their vote and have it counted. Voters of color, young voters, rural voters, physically challenged voters, and poor voters are particularly impacted.
ASBN is proud to co-sponsor a conversation with Ari Berman, senior reporter at Mother Jones and author of the award-winning book, Give Us the Ballot. We’ll discuss how we got here, what’s at stake, and how “we the people” can protect American democracy at this crucial moment.
Five copies of Ari’s book will be raffled off during the program. All registrants will be automatically entered into a raffle to receive a free copy of Ari’s book. You must be present to claim your book.
