The Changing Face of America: Impact on the 2018 Election and Beyond
 

Session 3 of Who Gets to be American? Immigration and the Fight for America’s Future


Monday, October 1, 2018

Shaw Hall, Younts Conference Center
6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

Presented in partnership with Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Furman

Despite recent changes in immigration policy, demographics in America are changing, and continued change is inevitable. What can we expect politically in the coming decades as America becomes a majority-minority country? How will this shift impact who runs for and who wins public office in America?
 
Join us October 1 as we hear first from Whit Ayres, a leading Republican pollster, and then from Peter Hart, a leading Democratic pollster.  Furman professor of political science Dr. Danielle Vinson will then moderate a conversation with Whit, Peter, and NPR’s Jessica Taylor. Former U.S. Secretary of Education and two-term Governor of South Carolina Dick Riley will offer closing remarks.
 
Note: This is a rescheduling of our September 13 event. If you have a paid reservation, we will keep you on our list and look forward to seeing you on Oct. 1. If you are unable to attend on Oct. 1, and you would like to request a refund, please email OLLI@Furman.edu or call 294-2998.
