Atlanta, Speak Up!
The Future of Elections and Democracy: A Public Forum with FEC Vice Chair Ann Ravel.

Federal Election Comission (FEC) Vice Chair Ann Ravel is coming to Emory University for a public forum on the future of elections and democracy. Every attendee will have the chance to make a public comment directly to Vice Chair Ravel. The FEC is the agency in charge of enforcing federal rules on money in politics.

Join us October 23rd at 6:00pm in Atlanta to speak with Ann Ravel, the next Chairwoman of the FEC -- Learn more or reserve your spot .

Getting our elections back on track begins with a massive public outcry. All forums are free and open to the public, and your presence will make a powerful statement even if you choose not to speak.

Want to speak up but don't know where to begin? See our simple guide to get you started.

"The Future of Elections and Democracy" is a public event hosted by the Emory University School of Law and sponsored by Represent.Us and the League of Women Voters of Atlanta-Fulton County. The event will feature a short opening statement from Vice Chair Ravel and brief remarks from a panel of local experts, followed by a public comment period.
