Strengthening American Democracy Speaker Series: Overcoming the Challenges Women Face in Running for Office with Christina Reynolds, VP EMILY's List
Join us for a presentation from Christina Reynolds, the Vice President of EMILY's List, an organization dedicated to electing pro-choice women to public office in the first of the IOP's Strengthening American Democracy Speaker series. Christina is the co-author, with EMILY’s List former President Stephanie Schriock, of Run to Win: Lessons in Leadership for Women Changing the World. Her presentation will focus on the challenges that women face in the electoral arena and how candidates and organizations that support them can work to overcome those challenges.

About the Series:
Since its founding, the principles of the American democracy enshrined in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights have been a light to all peoples and nations. While these principles have guided and maintained American democracy through the years, events in our recent history have raised concerns about the commitment of Americans to democracy and the stability of our treasured democratic institutions. As citizens, we have the responsibility to strengthen and support democracy, to better comprehend the principles on which it was founded, and to understand our essential role in the democratic process by which governments are established through the consent of the governed.

In the coming year, the Institute of Politics at Florida State will focus on creating awareness of the importance of the principles of democracy, the threats to those principles, and new ideas about how we can strengthen our republic. In the 2021-22 academic year we look forward to inviting leaders, thinkers, and scholars to campus to have that discussion about how we can strengthen American democracy.
