Bird In Hand is delighted to welcome David Daley for a conversation about voting rights and democracy issues. David will be in conversation with Gilda Daniels.
Following Ratf**ked, his “extraordinary timely and undeniably important” (New York Times Book Review) exposé of how a small cadre of Republican operatives rigged American elections, David Daley emerged as one of the nation’s leading authorities on gerrymandering. In Unrigged, he charts a vibrant political movement that is rising in the wake of his and other reporters’ revelations. With his trademark journalistic rigor and narrative flair, Daley reports on Pennsylvania’s dramatic defeat of a gerrymander using the research of ingenious mathematicians and the Michigan millennial who launched a statewide redistricting revolution with a Facebook post. He tells the stories of activist groups that paved the way for 2018’s historic blue wave and won crucial battles for voting rights in Florida, Maine, Utah, and nationwide. In an age of polarization, Unrigged offers a vivid portrait of a nation transformed by a new civic awakening, and provides a blueprint for what must be done to keep American democracy afloat.
David Daley is the author of the national best-seller Ratf**ked: Why Your Vote Doesn't Count and the new Unrigged: How Americans Are Battling Back to Save Democracy. His journalism on gerrymandering and voting rights has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Guardian and many other publications. He is the former editor-in-chief of Salon.
Gilda R. Daniels is an Associate Professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law. She is the author of Uncounted: The Crisis of Voter Suppression in America.
