    For this week’s episode, we are re-broadcasting the audio of an Equal Citizens event held on March 31st, 2021 entitled, “The Fight For Voting Rights Reform: The Path To H.R. 1 and H.R. 4”. The event featured Lawrence Lessig moderating a conversation between Duke Law Professor Guy-Uriel Charles and Emory Professor Carol Anderson.

Representative Mondaire Jones makes a special appearance.
