YEO Network: Voting Rights and Defending Democracy

People For in Action

Right before President Biden’s speech to the joint session of Congress on April 28, our Young Elected Officials Network hosted an event on voting rights and defending democracy.

People For’s Deputy Director of Leadership Programs Markus Batchelor and Georgia House Representative Park Cannon met virtually to discuss the work that must be done at the White House and in Congress to expand and defend the right to vote.
