The Broad Room hosted a What are the Midterms and Why Do They Matter panel, with campaign experts, Alison Hirsh, Lis Smith, and Melissa Mark-Viverito.
We learned all about the upcoming midterm elections: which seats are up for election, how we can fill those seats with progressives, the importance for voting in these elections, and much more (with free wine, obvs).
