The aftermath of the January 6, 2021 attack on the United States Capitol reflected and further impacted the monumental level of hyper-polarization in the U.S. Join us as we explore the question: How has our democracy changed since the Capitol insurrection, and what are the implications for the 2022 midterms?

The USC Sol Price School of Public Policy in partnership with the USC Price Center for Inclusive Democracy will open the webinar with a pre-recorded interview with U.S. Senator Alex Padilla, followed by an expert panel discussion on how public sentiments and the mood of the electorate could impact voter behaviors, registration numbers, and voter turnout in 2022.
