Friday Power Lunch: Democracy in Danger: Unpacking the Political Power Playbook

This week on the Friday Power Lunch we will look at some of the dangers facing Democracy. Our guests will help us unwrap the political power playbook to get a look at how the will of the people is being obstructed in the states, as well as federally with the delay of the 28th Amendment (ERA) to the U.S. Constitution.

David Pepper, master storyteller and author of the must read book of the moment, Laboratories of Autocracy: A Wake-Up Call from Behind the Lines will help us understand the corruption and extremism now poisoning state governments. David knows his way around state politics as a former city councilman, mayor, county commissioner, and head of the Democratic Party of Ohio. During his tenure as party leader, he saw a coordinated Republican effort to undermine democracy in Ohio be used as a blueprint in other states. You won’t want to miss this extended conversation with David where he will share the scary details of this power playbook and present steps we must take to fight back.

When Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the ERA, all constitutional requirements for the ERA to become the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution were satisfied. Yet, the ERA has not been published by the Archivist. What’s up with this? Carol Jenkins ( President, ERA Coalition) will start this segment off by giving us an update from the national perspective. Michelle Kallen (former Solicitor General of Virginia) will explain the legal issues in play. We will round up this segment with longtime activists Eileen Davis and Andrea Miller (Vote Equality) sharing the calls to action on the 2-year anniversary of Virginia being the 38th state to ratify the ERA.
