SLP: Ending the Filibuster

May 6

The Republican Party has failed to keep pace with significant demographic, social, and political trends in America. Instead, despite their dwindling base, they have exerted control over the levers of law and politics to retain political power by stacking the courts, disenfranchising voters, and gerrymandering state and federal districts. The Senate filibuster is one last choke hold they will continue to use to impede progressive legislation.

Join Swing Left for a Zoom presentation on May 6, 2021, with Professors Sonja Jacobi and Matthew Sag, who will address the Republican anti-democratic tactics and our best counter strategies for advancing progressive agendas across the country. Both have worked and published extensively on these topics of American law and politics and bring a unique international perspective as Australian nationals.
