*CANCELLED* ACS Colorado: “Unrigged” with David Daley
Following his exposé of how a small cadre of Republican operatives rigged American elections, David Daley emerged as one of the nation’s leading authorities on gerrymandering. He joins us with insight from his new book Unrigged: How Americans Are Battling Back to Save Democracy, charting vibrant political movements rising to combat election tampering across the nation.
Daley highlights activist groups that have paved the way for 2018’s historic blue wave and won crucial battles for voting rights in Florida, Maine, Utah, and nationwide. Daley delves into the stories of Pennsylvania’s dramatic defeat of a gerrymander using the research of ingenious mathematicians, and the Michigan millennial who launched a statewide redistricting revolution with a Facebook post.
Join the ACS Colorado Lawyer Chapter, the ACS University of Colorado Law School Student Chapter, and Daley for a portrait of a nation transformed by a new civic awakening—and a blueprint for what must be done to keep American democracy afloat.
