To build on this week's episode, we have assembled a panel about voting rights and the 2020 elections. We'll speak to Mime Troupe artist Daniel Savio, North Carolina elections researcher Sunny Frothingham and Wisconsin caucus organizer Eric Rorholm.

Daniel Savio is a composer and lyricist for this summer's series, Tales of the Resistance. He is a longtime artist with the Mime Troupe, having worked on productions including GodFellas ('06), Making a Killing ('07), Freedomland ('15), Schooled ('16) and WALLS ('17), among others.

Sunny Frothingham is Senior Researcher with Democracy NC, an organization dedicated to advancing democracy in North Carolina. She has held research and advocacy roles in a variety of issue-based campaigns ranging from family economic policy to gun violence prevention, labor and LGBTQ rights. 

Eric Rorholm is an electoral organizer based at Marquette University. In February, he organized a satellite caucus for the Iowa democratic primaries, and in March, he witnessed the Wisconsin primaries that proceeded during a pandemic. 

Come discuss what voting will look like around the country this November.
