CRSJ Chair Chat: Perfecting Democracy

Chair Thomas Discusses the Initiative

This year, 2022-23 CRSJ Section Chair Juan R.

The sixth Chat features a discussion with Cynthia Swann and Elizabeth Yang – leaders of CRSJ's Voting Rights and Fair Elections Task Force – exploring the role lawyers play in election protection, particularly through the Section's Perfecting Democracy initiative.
