A Serious Election Demands a Serious Electorate

August 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

For most Americans, the upcoming election looms like a slow-moving train wreck. There is no way to stop it from happening and no way to get out of the way. There is no rewind button. The election of 2024 will come, and whatever the results, they will have profound and perhaps permanent implications for our society. How do we understand the choice before us, and what should we do? Chris Beem says that such a serious moment in our history requires us to respond accordingly: A serious election requires a serious electorate.
