Issue One is convening leading experts and officials tomorrow for a new speaker series designed to explore the most pressing matters facing American democracy today and how we can fix our broken political system.
The first event in the series, “How State Voting Proposals Could Impact How Millions of Americans Vote,” kicks off tomorrow, Tuesday, April 6 from 12-1pm ET, and will feature an important dialogue about efforts to curtail access to voting, and what we can do to make the electoral process even more secure and accessible — instead of making it harder for people to vote. This will be an on-the-record event and press are invited to attend.

Already in 2021, state legislators have introduced more than 360 bills in 47 states to make it harder to vote, including measures to limit the early voting options that 85 million people used to safely vote in 2020, an election with the highest turnout in a century. This wave of legislation follows months of disinformation about the validity and security of the 2020 general election.
The event will feature Issue One’s CEO and Founder Nick Penniman in conversation with:
- Secretary Trey Grayson, former Republican Secretary of State of Kentucky
- Steven Greenhut, Resident Senior Fellow and Western Region Director at the R Street Institute
- Eliza Sweren-Becker, Counsel, Democracy Program at the Brennan Center for Justice
We hope you can join us tomorrow, and be on the lookout for our upcoming speaker series events.
