After the Election: What's Next for US Democracy?

After a political season shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic, nationwide protests for racial justice, sharp partisan divisions, and questions about the integrity of the electoral process itself, there was a great deal to discuss after the 2020 election. Listen to a lively community conversation featuring Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Nicholas Kristof, 300th Anniversary University Professor and former Harvard Law School dean Martha Minow, educator and Facing History alum Janae McMillan, and legal scholar and Harvard Law School professor Randall Kennedy to examine what’s next for US democracy, the role of teachers and education, and the future of youth civic participation.
