Book Talk: 100% Democracy: The Case for Universal Voting

Event date and time

Friday, April 8, 2022 - 10:00am

Description

The Cal State LA community is invited to join a conversation with Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne and Harvard fellow Miles Rapoport, who will discuss their new book 100% Democracy: The Case for Universal Voting. The authors will describe universal voting policies around the world and how similar policies might be adopted in the United States. Is it time for the U.S. to take a major leap forward and recognize voting as both a fundamental civil right and a solemn civic duty?
