Left Bank Books and the American Constitution Society welcome law professor Joshua A. Douglas, who will sign and discuss his new book, Vote for US, with the Advancement Project program director Denise Lieberman!
In contrast to the anxiety surrounding our voting system, with stories about voter suppression and manipulation, there are actually quite a few positive initiatives toward voting rights reform. Joshua A. Douglas, an expert on our electoral system, examines these encouraging developments in this inspiring book about how regular Americans are working to take back their democracy, one community at a time. This book gives anyone fed up with our current political environment the ideas and tools necessary to affect change in their own communities, and presents an encouraging assessment of current efforts to make our voting system more accessible, reliable, and effective.
"This book is mandatory reading for anyone who wants to stop spinning their wheels and actually fix the dystopia that grips American politics.”
—Josh Silver, cofounder and director, RepresentUs
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of Vote for US from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
