SOCIAL IMPACT LIVE: Mobilizing Marginalized Communities to Vote
- CSSW Communications
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | STREAMED LIVE ON FACEBOOK*
**PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EPISODE WILL BE HELD FROM 1:30 to 2:00 P.M.**
In advance of the 2020 general election, the Columbia School of Social Work has been furthering its history of voting rights activism. In this episode of Social Impact LIVE, host Richard Hara (bio) sits down with two members of the CSSW community who have been particularly active in this effort, Assistant Professor Rob Hartley (bio) and current student Sarah Jamgotch. Hartley recently produced a research brief for the Poor People’s Campaign describing how many low-income Americans in each state did not vote in the 2016 presidential elections and showing how their participation could have shifted important outcomes. Jamgotch is one of the student leaders behind the School’s Social Work Votes campaign, which has been partnering with various voter engagement initiatives to mobilize the social work community nationwide to get out the vote among people social workers serve.
