Resist! The Attack on Democracy and How We Fight Back

January 30


Sunday, January 30
1:00 pm - 2:15 pm Pacific time zone




Defending Democracy Speaker Series
A presentation by David Pepper
Chairman of the Ohio Democratic Party, 2015-2021
Author of Laboratories of Autocracy: A Wake-up Call from Behind the Lines


American democracy is under attack. Long before the events of January 6 and far from Washington, a well-organized, determined minority has worked for years to undermine the democratic foundations of our political institutions, seeking to establish permanent GOP minority rule. In this timely warning of what the future holds if we don’t take action, author and law professor David Pepper speaks to where the greatest threat lies, the growing challenge, and the steps that we can and must take to win the fight for democracy in America.

As foundational reading prior to this event, attendees are encouraged to read David’s book, Laboratories of Autocracy: A Wake-Up Call from Behind the Lines, available from Books Inc., Kepler’s and other bookstores.
