To build on their respective missions that advance democracy, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) and Chautauqua Institution have announced a partnership to co-create, host and distribute programming centering on voter education and engagement.   

The partnership launches November 1 on Chautauqua’s CHQ Assembly streaming channel with the premiere of a conversation between CLC Founder and President Trevor Potter and Chautauqua President Michael E. Hill, examining the mission of CLC and key issues at play in the upcoming mid-term election.  
The launch will also feature a series of short educational videos produced by CLC covering topics such as what voters should know about secret spending in our elections, voting by mail, and the work being done to safeguard the 2024 presidential election. 

CLC is excited to partner with the Chautauqua Institution at this critical time for our democracy. We hope that this collaboration will help connect voters with the tools they need to exercise their rights, while elevating awareness about rising threats to our electoral process. This is particularly crucial now, as the airwaves and online spaces are awash with misinformation about our elections, and partisan actors are constantly probing for weak spots in order to gain an advantage while the powers that be repeatedly fail to hold them accountable. 

Future programs will be co-presented on CHQ Assembly and in-person in Washington, D.C., and on Chautauqua’s grounds in Chautauqua, New York, during the Institution’s annual nine-week Summer Assembly.  

CHQ Assembly programs are presented live and on-demand at (subscription required). The entire library of lectures and many other events from Chautauqua’s 2022 and 2021 seasons are available now, in addition to new programs that are launched each week.
