"We Are the People, " the 2020 edition of the University of Delaware's National Agenda program, calls attention to the power of us—the citizens of the United States—as well as the liberties granted to us by the Constitution. Even in this tumultuous time, our right to vote in elections remains one of the most important acts we can perform as Americans. This fall, the tenth annual National Agenda speaker series tackles the issues facing the nation, with insight from a humorist, Hollywood producers, political insiders, and national journalists. National Agenda is free and open to the public. Lindsay Hoffman, Ph.D., UD associate professor of communication and political science, directs the program.
