Colorado Law Talks: Why Do People Lack Power in a Democracy?

In this Colorado Law Talk, Professor Doug Spencer engages in an important and timely conversation about the future of voting rights in the United States. From redistricting to voting rules to microtargeting (the decision by campaigns about who to contact), it can sometimes feel like those in power are wielding their influence to shape the electorate more than voters are using their power to shape the government. Has America's political system been turned on its head? Professor Spencer will discuss recent developments in the law, in the courts, and in political campaign strategies that have contributed to growing political inequality and he explores several potential reforms for addressing the breakdown of America's democracy.
