Special Election Presentation

Greg Orman's lecture "How Independents Can End Hyper-Partisanship and Restore Democracy" will explain the consequences the failure of the two-party system has had on the American dream. He will show how we, as a country, got here, touching on the power of money in the political system and the revolving door of lobbyists creating the "rigged game" we operate in today. Orman will provide concrete solutions that starts with electing more Independents to office and explaining how this is a powerful and effective way to send a message to Washington that they can't continue to hide behind their party label.

This is not a Seminar Series event.
