ONLINE – URGENT – COVID 19 and the 2020 Elections Virtual Summit with Dolores Huerta!
May 31, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Please join us for this urgent conversation.
Our “COVID-19 and the 2020 Elections” webinar series launches with this two-day event that tackles what must be done to sustain momentum towards fair elections despite the uncertainties caused by the pandemic. We believe that now, when things are so difficult and uncertain, is when we must build unity towards one essential goal – a fair and free election.
Summit launches May 30 from 12:00 – 1:30 Eastern and May 31 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm Eastern. RSVP here.
Speakers will address:
- Exacerbation of existing biases within voting systems;
- The tanking U.S. economy and how elections are important for breaking excessive ties between work and healthcare that threaten to bankrupt huge numbers of American worker households
- Inadequate access to reliable information and relentless attacks on an open and independent press.
