> DESCRIPTION

Join us for a pre-Election Day conversation to explore how activists have influenced electoral debate and outcomes—historically and today. With so many citizens saying the political system is broken, this panel will explore what role grassroots activists and organizations might play in reconfiguring the political conversation and the electoral dynamics of the two-party system. Our distinguished panel will include Eric Foner, DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University; Fred Siegel, a scholar in residence at St. Francis College and senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute; and Dorian Warren, assistant professor at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University; as well as activists and other observers. The program will be moderated by Joshua Freeman, professor of history at Queens College and the CUNY Graduate Center.
