What is at stake during the 2020 elections?
As we live in the midst of an uprising, which is a response to police killings of unarmed Black people (and a legacy of racism that has proliferated throughout the country), while being led by a man who refused to pay his respects to one of this country’s foremost Civil Rights leaders—perhaps this sounds like a loaded question.
One thing’s clear—the various elections (presidential, congressional, etc) of 2020 are not to be taken lightly.
To unpack this all, we’ve called upon Glynda Carr, Co-Founder & President of Higher Heights; Judith Browne Dianis, Executive Director of the Advancement Project; and Rashad Robinson, President of Color of Change. Join us as we discuss the ways in which Black voters hold space in this incredibly hostile political climate.
Join us for this conversation, and others, at The Root’s first-ever Root Institute.
