Nsé Ufot and María Teresa Kumar on Voter Mobilization & COVID-19

June 11, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

On June 11 at 1 PM Eastern Time, Columbia World Projects will host a public Zoom discussion with Nsé Ufot, Executive Director of the New Georgia Project, and María Teresa Kumar, President and CEO of Voto Latino. COVID-19 has created new obstacles for voter mobilization efforts that risk exacerbating turnout gaps in communities of color – in a time of physical distancing, established methods of in-person organizing and community building are largely impracticable, and new forms of connection are needed.  This discussion with voter mobilization leaders will explore the challenges posed by the current pandemic and the innovative ways that their organizations are pivoting strategies to mobilize voters of color during COVID-19 and to strengthen our democracy.

The discussion and accompanying audience Q&A session will be moderated by Olatunde Johnson, the Jerome B. Sherman Professor of Law at Columbia Law School. All registrants will receive the event link, with the option to add this event to their online calendar, upon registration.
