Democracy is at its strongest when diverse voices collaborate. This week, CLC officially launches a new live streaming event series called Campaign Legal Conversations

Campaign Legal Conversations is a forum featuring dialogues about American democracy. As we head into the 2024 presidential election, this series features change-makers, authors, and experts across the political landscape who will exchange ideas, foster mutual understanding, and find common ground.  

These conversations don’t just stop at identifying issues. They also seek to spark innovative solutions aimed at strengthening our nation’s democratic institutions at this critical time.  

The kickoff for Campaign Legal Conversations is Washington Post Live’s “Democracy In America” event on September 28. Trevor Potter — CLC’s President and Republican Former Chairman of the Federal Election Commission — joins experts from Harvard University and Vanderbilt University to discuss the threats currently facing our democracy and efforts to strengthen democratic guardrails.
