What are the implications of the 2020 election for the prospects of building a genuine multi-racial democracy in the United States? What are the dangers posed by increasing partisan polarization on questions of race? Does this polarization also present any opportunities for progress?

This panel will discuss these questions, bringing together UC Berkeley scholars and nationally recognized political strategists to share reflections on what the 2020 election holds for the future of democracy and efforts to achieve racial justice in the United States.  

Speakers: 

  • Reed Galen, Co-founder, The Lincoln Project
