Location: 

Room 106, 124 Mt Auburn Street, Suite 100N

Join us for the fourth session of the Democracy Reform: Through the Practitioner’s Lens study group with Miles Rapoport. Voter suppression played a major role in the 2018 elections, and promises to continue to be sharply contested terrain in the elections of 2020. What’s the latest on the issue, and the strong efforts fighting back against attempts to limit the vote? This session will feature Brenda Wright, Senior Legal Advisor, Demos, and Allegra Chapman, a leading voting rights lawyer, previously of Common Cause and Demos.

This study group is open to the Harvard and broader Boston-area university community and requires no prior registration or application. Lunch will be served. 

Please note: The location for this event has changed from Room 226, Suite 200N to Room 106, Suite 100N

About the Study Group

Join Miles Rapoport, Senior Practice Fellow in American Democracy, for a four-part study group which will examine various aspects of the burgeoning democracy reform movement sweeping through states across the country. Throughout the semester, Rapoport and guests, including leading advocates and organizers on voting rights, campaign finance reform, gerrymandering, and redistricting, will share their unique experiences and perspectives. The group will discuss democracy reform campaigns, lessons learned, and the building of a movement to make democracy more inclusive, participatory, and responsive.
