TONIGHT! Unpacking Election 2020: A Panel Discussion

The Park Center for Independent Media is hosting a panel discussion following the results of election 2020 on Wednesday, November 18, at 7–8:30 p.m. EST. This election yielded record turnout and confirmed the deep polarization among American voters. Our panelists will discuss voting trends, narrow margins in many states, and if the impacts of COVID-19, racial injustice, and the economic downturn affected electoral behavior. The evening will explore what lies ahead, from the January transition of power to key issues facing the American public.

  4. PARK students DO NOT NEED A RAC -unless you are a dual or double major.
  5. Be sure you hit the SUBMIT button when adding a class. If it says PENDING- that means you are NOT registered!
