Please join us Thursday, November 12, 2020 at 5:30 pm for a lively and informative discussion on “Election 2020 Debrief: Through the Lenses of Key States.” This Forum on the Phone event is part of the HKS DC Alumni Council’s Voter Readiness Initiative.
This Forum will feature a cross-country panel of fellow HKS alumni who will offer meaningful insights into recent election results from the perspective of several so-called “battleground” states. Panelists will also explore issues that impacted the U.S. presidential race – from COVID-19 response and relief efforts, to racial justice and associated activism, to healthcare, and to the economy.
The panel will be moderated by Natalie Brand, MC/MPA 2015 alum, award-winning journalist, and Washington, DC-based correspondent for CBS News. Natalie has reported from around the country on issues including politics, government shutdowns, immigration, climate change, wildfires, and agriculture.
