Elections and the State of Our Democracy

December 14 at 7:00 pm9:00 pm

The East Side Freedom Library invites you to “Elections and the State of Our Democracy” on Thursday, December 14 @ 7:00PM-9:00PM.

From Washington to Minnesota and beyond, there has been growing concern about popular confidence in the U.S. election process.  

Can foreign governments intervene and influence outcomes?

Are people voting illegally?  

Are people who should have the right to vote being denied their access?  

Are state political parties gerrymandering districts to remain in power?  Does money have too much influence in our elections? What do we all need to know in order to protect our democracy?

The East Side Freedom Library invites you to hear from two speakers who have spent considerable time and effort investigating some of these issues. Matthew Filner is Associate Professor of Social Science at Metropolitan State University. Filner will focus his presentation on the issue of gerrymandering. Gil Gustafson is a Board Member of the non-partisan, non-profit organization Clean Elections Minnesota. Gil will address the challenges to our democratic electoral processes posed by big money and dark money. We hope that these two presentations will provide knowledge about what is actually happening within our electoral process and will generate a discussion about what we can do to make democracy more secure.

Please join us for a program of popular education about elections in our present historical moment.

Free and Open to All.
