UMDemocracy: Social Media's Influence on Democracy (featuring College of Education Assistant Professor Sarah McGrew)

If so, join our panel of experts, including College of Education's very own Dr. Sarah Mcgrew, to learn more how social media influences topics related to politics and elections and how this will affect the midterm election.
