An Optimist's View of the 2022 Midterms with Richard Greene, "the Civics Dean" - And Special Guests Rep. Ted Lieu (CA 33) and Actor Richard Schiff ("The West Wing")


Please join our Global Forum on Thursday, February 17 at 1 PM Eastern (7 PM CET) as we debate, question, and challenge the notion that we can't win the 2022 Midterm Elections, with Richard Greene, Congressman Ted Lieu (CA-33), and Richard Schiff.

Richard Greene, called "The Best Idea Guy in America" has a revolutionary, super simple, and gamified approach to engaging the likely 120 million Americans who will NOT otherwise be voting (including several million abroad). He believes, as he says, that we are "on the 2-yard line" of getting virtually EVERYTHING we and America as a whole have wanted for decades. And that with the election of "Just. 2. More." in the midterms, we can, and will, get there. He is ready for you to challenge his optimism!

Congressman Lieu will share his perspectives on the 2022 midterms and offer some thoughts on what is going on in Congress and will answer your questions.

And Richard Schiff will share his thoughts on where we are and what he and the Hollywood community can do to keep The Donald Trump Party from returning to power, in 2022 and, of course, in 2024.
