“What Now?” – A WHYY-PHC Statewide Town Hall On Civic And Electoral Participation

January 12, 2021

This event is now over. You can watch the recording here.

All eyes were on Pennsylvania as it captured the national spotlight during the 2020 Presidential election. From the surge of mail-in voting amid a pandemic to accusations of fraud to a deadly insurrection in the Capitol, it has been a contentious electoral season that challenges the foundations of our democracy. How has it changed voters’ faith in our government and media? What have we learned and how can we heal and move forward?

Join host Solomon Jones and a diverse panel of political experts for “What Now?”, a statewide, interactive discussion about the election and aftermath, including ways Pennsylvanians can promote decency, dialogue, and informed civic engagement. The conversation will be driven by WHYY’s interviews with voters from across the state, who shared stories and their perspective, and feature an opportunity for audience questions.

Panelists include:

  • Solomon Jones, WURD Radio Host/WHYY News Columnist
  • Charlie Dent, former Pennsylvania Republican US Congressman
  • Camille Burge, Villanova University Political Science Professor
  • Katie Meyer, WHYY Political Reporter
  • Jamari Davis, Voter and Businessman from Lebanon, PA

“What Now?” live-streamed on Thursday, January 14th from 4-5:30 PM.

Funding is provided by the “Why It Matters: Civic and Electoral Participation” initiative, administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils and funded by Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
