The event will feature Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders in conversation with Equal Citizens’ founder Lawrence Lessig and Fordham Law Professor Zephyr Teachout as the two moderators.
During the conversations, presidential candidates have a chance to discuss issues like campaign finance reform, the role of Super PACs, partisan gerrymandering, ranked-choice voting, voter registration, lobbying reform, and how to improve the we elect the president. These town halls ensure that these critical issues play a prominent role in the 2020 primary and general election.
