” [Ari] has written extensively about American politics, civil rights, and the intersection of money and politics. His stories have also appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and The Guardian, and he is a frequent guest and commentator on MSNBC and NPR.

Ari, a senior reporter for Mother Jones and a Fellow at The Nation Institute, is an expert on the issues of gerrymandering, voter registration, and voter suppression—topics that are on the mind of many in the lead-up to the 2018 midterm elections.

Ari’s book, Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America, was published in 2015 and is as relevant as ever. He has written extensively about American politics, civil rights, and the intersection of money and politics. His stories have also appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and The Guardian, and he is a frequent guest and commentator on MSNBC and NPR. The event is in Meeting Room A of the Iowa City Public Library, co-sponsored by the Johnson County League of Women Voters and the University of Iowa Public Policy Center.
