GCDP Equal Justice Forum: Democracy at a crossroads

August 20, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

SAVE THE DATE: This panel discussion will be led by retired U.S. District Court Judge, Ricardo Urbina. The three panelists include, Teresa Nesbitt Cosby, a Furman University Constitutional Law Professor – Frank Holleman, Senior Attorney with the Southern Environmental Law Center / prior U.S. Deputy Secretary of Education – and Shaundra Young Scott, prior ACLU SC Director, now Director of Voter Protection for the SC Democratic Party. The esteemed moderator and panel will inform, excite, and impassion Democrats and Independents on key Democratic issues. As proven legal professionals and scholars who are active in our local community and with our Party, they will discuss how the current White House is undermining our core Democratic principles, while sharing insights and stories regarding their own area of expertise and modern day abuses to our Constitutional protections. Each will unveil the tactics on the ‘far right’ that have sustained systemic racism in our country. Discussion will center on how this Administration is using racist tactics to hold on to power to benefit the rich while disenfranchising the poor. Each will speak to how we can effectively fight back and how the Party and activists are developing solutions for setting an effective waypoint to the future.

This virtual event will be broadcast on Zoom. Watch here for the link when it becomes available.
