Join Civic Fellow Michelle Murphy from the Martin Richards Institute for Social Justice on Tuesday, April 13, 5:00 PM to discuss the Ted Talk An election system that puts voters (not politicians) first.
We will be watching the TED Talk “An election system that puts voters (not politicians) first." by Amber McReynolds. From hours-long lines and limited polling locations to confusing and discriminatory registration policies, why is it so hard to vote in the US? Voting rights expert Amber McReynolds offers a proven alternative: a new process, already happening in parts of the country, that could bring accountability, transparency and equity to the outdated and sputtering system that American democracy currently relies on.
Details to join are in URL 1 below! Join us from 5 to 6 PM on Tuesday, April 13. You can also always watch the TED Talk on your own through URL 2 and join us later at 5:30 for the discussion.
