Discourse for Democracy flyer

Who in America can reliably expect the right to vote? From the earliest days of our nation, the right to vote has been upheld as a critical component of democratic citizenship, but voting rights remain a struggle for many. Join us as we discuss the importance of voting for realizing the promise of our democracy.

September 13, 2022 – November 1, 2022

Becoming an informed voter is simultaneously easier and more difficult than ever before. Candidates have unprecedented reach and access to voters, but so do political action committees and other partisan influencers. Enter the fray with us as we look beyond the headlines, memes and soundbites. Duke experts will explore a range of viewpoints on current political issues such as voting rights, data privacy, the economy, health care and more. Join us as we use a research-based approach to consider the contemporary political landscape and the historical context that has shaped it.
