Our guest is Reyna Walters-Morgan, who is the DNC’s Director of Voter Protection and Civic Engagement. With Trump’s reckless cuts to the Postal Service and Republican attempts all around the country to restrict voting rights, sow confusion, and eliminate polling sites, the work that Reyna and her team do is more important than ever. 

Join us to learn more about what the DNC is doing to protect the vote, and how we in Hawaiʻi can help!
