Election Day is Tuesday, and for many voters, it has felt like a long time coming. For the last three and a half years, Donna Cohen has been holding a series of education classes focused on the fundamentals of the political process. Her “Civics for Adults” series includes classes on misinformation, fake news and propaganda, the constitution and citizen activism. Cohen joins us to tell us more about her work and how she’s feeling on the eve of Election Day.
