Earlier this year, we kicked off a special event series with Sun-Times columnist Laura Washington and Washington D.C. bureau chief Lynn Sweet. Now, with shelter-in-place orders still in effect, we are taking the events online — and inviting you to join us at the Virtual Table.

Grab your dinner, settle into your sofa, and join Lynn Sweet, Laura Washington and special guest Tina Sfondeles for a conversation about COVID-19’s impact on local and national politics.

Who is winning and losing in this season of COVID-19? What are the current risks for elected officials? How will the pandemic influence the upcoming election? And how will politics change permanently?

Tune in on Facebook Live on Thursday, May 14 from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
