Eitan Hersh
Politics Is for Power
Sunday, October 25 at 5:00 pm on Zoom (Click here to RSVP)

With just weeks until the critical 2020 Presidential Election, the Amram Scholar Series presents Tufts University political scientist Eitan Hersh, whose new book, Politics Is for Power, urges us to stop treating politics like a spectator sport, and instead, become effectively engaged in action. His Zoom lecture will offer cutting-edge social science as well as remarkable stories of ordinary citizens to show us how to channel our energy away from political hobbyism and toward empowering our values. It is an inspiring and urgent call to arms for the many well-meaning, well-informed citizens who avidly follow political news but do not take political action.
