2020 Election Series


The nation is abuzz this election season, closely watching the candidates while attempting to predict the results of what will happen this November. The polls are changing daily, and few political acumens are betting their career on whether the tables will turn this fall.  

With all that’s happening this election cycle, WGR is excited to present our 2020 Election Series!  Participate in the conversation this fall by plugging into WGR and join us for one of the election focused events ranging from what the candidates are saying to tackling key issues.

Events will pivot to virtual as needed.
