Cal RCV is excited to announce, in partnership with our coalition partner Level Up California, a panel discussion featuring Andrew Yang, Rob Richie, and Maria Perez entitled "Is RCV the One Reform to Save America?"
On Wednesday, February 9th, our panelists will join moderator Tom Charron of the California RCV Coalition to discuss the state of voting in California and our nation as a whole. Ranked Choice Voting provides a unique opportunity to increase voter choice at the ballot box and discourage the divisive political practices that have become standard in American politics. Our three panelists have unique insight into the problems with our current elections system and a passion for solving the crisis of America's ever-deepening political divide.
Andrew Yang is a former Presidential Candidate and venture capitalist and is the founder and current head of the Forward Party.
Rob Richie is the founder and CEO of FairVote, a nonprofit organization advancing the cause of Ranked Choice Voting and Proportional Representation on the national level.
Maria Perez is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of Democracy Rising, an organization focusing on empowering communities to better participate in democracy and achieve more representative, accountable leadership.
