In addition to marking the 2020 election, this virtual symposium on voting will provide an opportunity for our intellectual community to think seriously about democratic citizenship and to look to the future with the goal of renewing democracy and making it more equitable. As we grapple with challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic and structural racism in the United States, it seems
especially important that we aspire to universal voter participation and think carefully about ways to bring marginalized voices into the political landscape.
The symposium will feature a diverse range of voices including scholars, activists, community members, and others who will help us think about how we can achieve universal voter participation and what it will take to enhance popular trust in democracy over the long term.

You may attend all or part of this two day special series.
