Page Gardner, Founder & President of the Voter Participation Center

Podcast cover
Read more

Page Gardner is the founder and board chair of Voter Participation Center and its partner organization founder, the Center for Voter Information. The Voter Participation Center has helped 4.6 million voters register and get to the polls.

Page Gardner was a pioneer in recognizing unmarried women as a key political voting bloc with significant and impactful political power. We discuss what's called the “marriage gap” between unmarried and married women, in relation to their registration habits and voting behaviors.

We also discuss income gap for unmarried women, in the context of the coronavirus outbreak, given that unmarried women generally have less financial stability when compared to married women and will undoubtedly be hit harder by the economic fallout following the pandemic.

Chryl Laird, "Steadfast Democrats: How Social Forces Shape Black Political Behavior"

Podcast cover
Read more

CHRYL LAIRD

Chyrl Laird, is a political analyst, author and professor, who specializes in Race and Ethnic Politics and Political Psychology. In her new book titled, "Steadfast Democrats: How Social Forces Shape Black Political Behavior," which Laird coauthored along with Ismail White, they analyze the historical political patterns of Black voters, and explore the question of why Black Americans are by far the most unified racial group in American electoral politics. They argue that the roots of black political unity were originally established through the adversities of slavery and segregation, when black Americans forged uniquely strong social bonds for survival and resistance. 

In this conversation, Chryl Laird draws parallels to the historical examples from the book and correlate them to more recent political events, like Democratic primary for instance.
