Jerrod Laber does not see the fraying of American politics getting better anytime soon. As part of our ongoing discussions with our Free Society Fellows, Jerrod reflects on Charlottesville, the toxicity of the Republican Party and the growing pains of America as a racially pluralistic society.

The Free Society Fellowship is Young Voices response to Charlottesville and the tragedy that occurred there in August 2017. Our goal was to reinforce the message of our movement… in contrast to ethno-nationalism…the free society is cosmopolitan, embracing people of all backgrounds under the common umbrella of free speech, property rights, religious freedom, and the rule of law.
Katarina Hall is a Young Voices Advocate and Free Society Fellow. We taped this conversation on Friday, March 31st to cap off her run in the program and get a sense for how he feels about the hurdles our democracy must clear going forward in order to survive. Our discussion covers Charlottesville, democracy in Cuba and more.
