State of Democracy Summit: Hari Sreenivasan, Jocelyn Benson, Brad Raffensperger, Josie Duffy Rice, Wesley Lowery, and more - 92Y Talks Episode 267

Apr 22, 2021

In this episode of 92Y Talks, we present excerpts from our recent State of Democracy Summit, produced in collaboration with the Knight Foundation, ProPublica, and Craig Newmark Philanthropies. The 2020 election season and its aftermath is perhaps one of the most tumultuous times in recent history: bringing longstanding tensions in America into violent relief and testing core pillars of the democratic process as never before. Just how did America get here and where do we go now?

State of Democracy: PBS Newshour's Hari Sreenivasan, The New Yorker's Jill Lepore, Yuval Levin of the American Enterprise Institute, and Harvard professor Danielle Allen discuss vital questions about American democracy, whom it serves and how it functions.

How America Votes: Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and David Becker, Executive Director of The Center for Election Innovation and Research, introduced by Evette Alexander of the Knight Foundation.

The Role of the Press: The Appeal's Josie Duffy Rice, Wesley Lowery of 60 Minutes+ and CBS News, NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen, and ProPublica's Stephen Engelberg.
