Running Against The Machine presented by Jim Coll
Few local elections demonstrate the dysfunction of New York election law as much as the only Republican primary race for a seat on the Nassau County Legislature in 2017.  James Coll, former candidate for the 15th District, and Christopher Paolillo, the campaign manager, will provide an eye-opening, non-partisan discussion about the seemingly insurmountable challenges they faced getting on the ballot from the day they announced to Election Day.  If there was any doubt you had about the need to reform our state’s election system, this lecture will provide some valuable answers and leave you asking some important questions as well.
 

Jim Coll is an Adjunct Professor of American and Constitutional History at Hofstra University and Nassau Community College, an NYPD detective and the founder of ChangeNYS, a nonprofit organization formed to educate New Yorkers about the need for nonpartisan civic understanding and political reform in the state. 

Registration suggested beginning June 25 by calling 466-8055, ext. 208/254, or register online.

United States Propaganda in World War I Presented by Don Parker

When the major powers of Europe became involved in a tragic war in 1914, President Wilson stated the United States would remain neutral. However, after many significant violations by the Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey) of our rights as a neutral nation, the United States Congress in April 1917 joined the Allies (Great Britain, France, Italy) and declared war against the Central Powers. Our entrance into the war proved to be the turning point. On November 11, 1918, the Central Powers surrendered to the Allies.

 In a time before radio, sound films, television and Twitter, how did the United States change its mindset from neutrality to a nation at war? Retired US History teacher, Don Parker, discusses the unique means of communication the United States used “to make the world safe for democracy.”
