The 2020 elections have exposed systemic challenges and limitations of US democracy and its electoral process.

This panel will explore principles of true democracy and historic challenges of US electoral structure. We will explore the challenges of the two-party system, lessons from recent elections, and the work of independent parties to disrupt that process. Additionally, we will discuss how popular movements and civil societies impact the electoral process.

  • Nelini Stamp, National Organizing Director, Working Families Party
  • L. Joy Williams, President, Brooklyn NAACP
