  2. David Pepper, former chairperson of the Ohio Democratic party and author of, “Saving Democracy: A User’s Manual for Every American,” discusses the work he and others in Ohio did to ensure approval of a constitutional amendment referendum question guaranteeing access to abortion and other forms of reproductive health care.

  3. Samir Jain, vice president of policy for the Center for Democracy & Technology, talks about his group’s view of President Biden’s recent Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence, and CDT’s goals in government regulation of AI.

Attorney Bill Bloss, who represents Bridgeport, CT mayoral candidate John Gomes, talks about video surveillance of illegal ballot harvesting in the Sept. 12th primary, where Gomes lost to incumbent Mayor Joe Ganim by 251 votes.
