TREC Webinar | Navigating Elections in Unprecedented Times
Monday, October 26th | 1:00 PM-2:00 PM Mountain Time
Presenter: Tim Mooney, Senior Counsel, Bolder Advocacy Program at Alliance for Justice
The 2020 U.S. presidential election was always supposed to be a bruising contest with a handful of states determining the winner based on a razor-thin margin of votes. Now, the confluence of this generational election with barriers to voting being erected through state and federal officials’ words and actions, all amidst a global pandemic, means there is a chance that we may have a contested post-election period this country hasn’t experienced in two decades. If history is any indication, nonprofits will play a critical role in nonpartisan voter engagement and education. In this webinar, you will learn more about what your organization can do before, during, and even after Election Day.
