As part of our ongoing commitment for the NYU community to engage as political activists, we invite you to a virtual Town Hall for VOTE 2020 featuring Myrna Pérez, Director of the Brennan Center's Voting Rights and Elections Program and Robert Paul Hartley, Columbia School of Social Work, author of Unleashing the Power of Poor and Low-Income Americans for the Poor People’s Campaign.
The coronavirus pandemic has altered the terrain of the 2020 Election and has raised the stakes of its outcome. While citizens are mobilizing to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and economic crisis, it's important to ensure the safe and universal exercise of the right to vote. In an election year like no other, voting is essential, but not sufficient. Beyond the critical act of voting, learn how you can join the fight to defend and extend our democracy.
Following the presentation, join our VOTE 2020 Fellows in Breakout sessions to explore ways that you can get involved in defending and extending our democracy.
