What: A Virtual Conversation with Congressman Jared Golden
When: Wednesday, April 7, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Who: YOU! And other champions of democracy including Rep. Golden, Sen. Chloe Maxmin, sponsor of LD 231, and Eric Bronner, Founder of Veterans for Political Innovation
According to the PEW Research Center, veterans are more likely than the general population to be politically independent -- 49% of all U.S. veterans identify as independent. These are men and women who have risked their lives to protect our democracy, and yet in Maine they are being denied the right to fully participate in our democratic process.
