Voices and Votes: Democracy in Action @ Zoom
Feb 18 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Voices and Votes: Democracy in Action @ Zoom

Celebrate the virtual opening of the Smithsonian Institution Museums on Main Street exhibition Voices and Votes: Democracy in America with the Florida Historic Capitol Museum and The Village Square! Join famed political scientist Dr. Susan McManus and Miami Herald Tallahassee Bureau Chief and Harvard Neiman Fellow Mary Ellen Klas as they discuss the lessons learned from our unique state during the 2020 election cycle. Candidates and voters across Florida turned out in record numbers—what inspired them to participate? What factors contributed to a campaign’s win? Or loss? Have the roles and influence of the media, the electorate, and political parties shifted? Together, with facilitator Keith Simmons from Florida Humanities, we’ll tackle the weighty questions and reflect on the personal ideals that drive each citizen’s participation in American democracy.

To register for this free Zoom program and receive log-in details, please visit http://bit.ly/FLVoicesandVotes.

The Voices and Votes: Democracy in America exhibit and related programming are brought to you by Florida Humanities and the Smithsonian Institution. We thank The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.
