Asma Khalid, political correspondent for NPR and cohost of the NPR Politics Podcast, speaks at Seventy Minutes.
This news magazine-style virtual event is exclusively available to Committee of Seventy guests. Just 15 days before the election, national commentators, pollsters, politicians, and historians joined in conversation to help us anticipate the Presidential election and what it means for America and the world. During this unprecedented election year, all eyes are on Pennsylvania. Amidst a global pandemic that has had far-reaching health, social, and economic ramifications across Philadelphia and the Commonwealth, our country is also having a reckoning with systemic racism. The importance of C70’s work, in this city, in this year, cannot be understated. If ever there was a time in our history when Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the nation needed the Committee of Seventy, this is it.
