CPR For Democracy & the Year of the Voter
This national election year is haunted by worries about polarization, voter fraud and suppression, toxic social media and disinformation campaigns. What can an individual voter do about all that? Plenty. As part of its Campaign for Political Responsibility (CPR), the Committee of Seventy is promoting Five Habits of Highly Effective Citizens. Seventy's CEO David Thornburgh talks with journalist Chris Satullo about what those habits are, why they matter and what Seventy is doing to help people uphold them. Also, listen in as Fresh Air's Dave Davies interviews the two speakers at our annual luncheon, constitutional scholar Akhil Reed Amar and civil rights lawyer Sherrilyn Ifill.
