Description

6PM - Reception | 7PM - Public Program

Join Maria McCauley, Director of Libraries, and the Cambridge Public Library Foundation Board of Directors for a special conversation about how voter suppression is impacting democracy and next steps to take with the following luminaries:

Carol Anderson, the Charles Howard Candler Professor and Chair of African American Studies at Emory University. She is the New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of One Person, No Vote, White Rage, Bourgeois Radicals and Eyes off the Prize;

Lawrence Lessig, the the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School. His current work addresses “institutional corruption”—relationships which, while legal, weaken public trust in an institution—especially as that affects democracy. His books include: They Don’t Represent Us (forthcoming in 2019) and Fidelity & Constraint: How the Supreme Court Has Read the American Constitution (2019);

and Rachael V. Cobb, Chair and Associate Professor of Political Science & Legal Studies at Suffolk University, who will moderate the conversation. She specializes in U.S. elections, election administration and political participation, and serves on the board of MassVOTE and the Boston Election Advisory Committee.
