The Schemel Forum presents Democracy in Crisis: Elections in 2020

The Schemel Forum has been invited to present this non-partisan program featuring distinguished national leaders at this important moment in our nation’s history.

Join us for Democracy in Crisis: Elections in 2020 Wednesday, October 14 at 6:30 pm ET.

The 2020 election presents unprecedented challenges due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, threats of foreign interference and civil unrest. Due to a large volume of absentee ballots, experts predict that the full election results may not be available for several days after November 3rd. Pennsylvania is a pivotal state that must put in place measures to ensure a safe, fair, and valid election.

Please join Former Congressman and Majority Leader Dick Gephardt, Former Congressman Charles Dent, Committee of Seventy President and CEO David Thornburgh, and veteran constitutional lawyer Mary McCord of Georgetown Law School for an open discussion of the election challenges and solutions, moderated by Dr. Jean Harris, The University of Scranton, with further support from Sondra Myers, Director of The Schemel Forum at The University of Scranton.
