There's not much we can do about the virus, but there will be work the League is well positioned to do!
I begin with my profound hope that you and yours are well - as are we, including our doctor daughter who is a hospitalist in Boston.
In the past week I listened to two wonderful virtual presentations by UCI Chancellor's Professor of Law Rick Hasen. Both were book talks about his latest book, "Election Meltdown: Dirty Tricks, Distrust, and the Threat to American Democracy." The book was written before the COVID19 pandemic and Rick was scheduled to be our speaker at Lunch with League this month to tell us all about it. As it turns out, it is even more important in the current situation.
I'm not going to summarize the content of the talks here - one of the talks is already available on Youtube and the other should be soon. To watch Rick's conversation with Tova Wang, Visiting Democracy Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation.
