Seventh Annual State of Voting Rights

Please join us for the Seventh Annual State of Voting Rights program. Our esteemed panel consists of those who run elections, advocate for voters, and fight for the right to vote in the courts and in halls of Congress. We hosted a comprehensive conversation about threats to the franchise, redistricting, the Electoral Count Act and prospective policy changes on the federal and state level. The Supreme Court opinions in Merrill v. Milligan, focusing on the Voting Rights Act, and Moore v. Harper, dealing with the “Independent State Legislature” theory also figured prominently into our discussion.

What to Expect for Immigration from the 118th Congress: A Bipartisan Conversation with Former Congressional Staffers

After two years of Democratic control of both the legislative and executive branches, the country is moving towards a divided government as the Republicans have regained control of the U.S. House of Representatives. House Republicans have promised to increase immigration oversight and possibly pursue the impeachment of U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. But even as immigration issues become an increasingly visible flashpoint, is it possible to pass any meaningful immigration legislation in the 118th Congress? Or will immigration be used as a wedge issue between both political parties? Join former House staff for Speaker Paul Ryan and Committee on House Administration Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren for a discussion on what we might expect.

For fifty years, abortion has been a hot point issue for contending political views, but until now relatively little attention has been given to the religious freedom implications of government associating itself with a particular view as to when life begins.
