American Voter Project: The Future of the Supreme Court

May 19, 2021

Online Event

Voting is fundamental to democracy, but American trust in “one person, one vote” has been compromised in recent years by Electoral College outcomes, allegations of voter suppression and voter fraud, and gerrymandering of congressional district boundaries. Integral to that conversation is the role of the United States Supreme Court. For this installment of the American Voter Project series, the Eric H. Holder Jr. Initiative for Civil and Political Rights invites you to join us for a panel discussion on the federal judiciary and the pressing issues that lie ahead.


Eric H. Holder Jr. CC'73, LAW'76, 82nd Attorney General of the United States

Justin Driver, Robert R. Slaughter Professor of Law, Yale Law School 

Adam Liptak, Supreme Court correspondent, The New York Times

Janai S. Nelson, Associate Director-Counsel, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. 

Moderated by Bernard E. Harcourt, Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher Professor of Law, Professor of Political Science and Executive Director of the Holder Initiative
