With the highly anticipated nationwide midterm elections just around the corner, the University of Baltimore will host the authors of Road Map for Revolutionaries, a new guidebook featuring "practical tactics for navigating and protecting one's personal democracy in a gridlocked, heavily surveilled, and politically volatile country," on Tuesday, Oct. 9, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the third-floor gathering space in the Bogomolny Library, 1420 Maryland Ave. The event is free and open to the public; an online R.S.V.P. is requested. Attendance details are listed below.
Stephanie Gibson, professor in the Klein Family School of Communications Design and the moderator for the Oct. 9 event, said she invited Road Map's authors to campus to encourage a discussion about the "full-time job" of being a citizen in a participatory democracy.
"The most important thing to do in the current political climate environment is vote. Vote like your life depends on it," Prof. Gibson said. "But voting isn't the only action we can take. There are so many more ways to be an effective voice."
Those who wish to attend this event are asked to fill out an online R.S.V.P. , for the purpose of providing updates about the talk. Copies of the book will be available for sale and authors' signing.
