Study Group: Elections 2018 Through the Practitioner’s Lens


Tuesday, November 13, 2018, 4:30pm to 6:00pm


Ash Center, 124 Mount Auburn St., Floor 2, Room 226

Join Miles Rapoport, Senior Practice Fellow in American Democracy, for the fifth session of a study group titled, "Elections 2018 Through the Practitioner’s Lens." 

Elections 2018 Through the Practitioner’s Lens

The 2018 elections will not just be a question of who wins and who loses; they will be a stress test of America’s democratic processes. Issues of election safety, voting access, the new wild west of campaign finance and redistricting will have major impact for the future. This Study Group will feature experienced practitioners-- people and organizations fighting for secure, inclusive, and fair elections-- who will share their perspectives and their work.

Session Five- The Week After: The New Landscape for Reform

Dan Cantor, the founder and current Chair of the Working Families Party, and a lead organizer in an upcoming “Unchaining Democracy” Campaign, and Jessie Ulibarri, the Executive Director of the State Information Exchange, will join the group. Focusing on the state level, we will look at the places in the country where real democracy reforms (and which ones) become possible, and what democracy reform groups are doing to make the most (or the best) of the moment, whatever it augurs.

Study Group Schedule

All study group sessions will be held from 4:30-6:00 PM at the Ash Center in Room 226
