Here's What You Need to Know About PolicyMic's First Panel Debate

Mark your calendars, D.C.

PolicyMic heads to Georgetown University on Monday, November 11 for its first 3 on 3 debate, addressing whether the Religious Right is hurting or helping the GOP

D.C. is home to 200+ pundits, nearly two thirds of which are affiliated with Georgetown. We're thrilled to offer our community the opportunity to bring their perspectives to a real-time discussion on the impact of evangelicalism in the GOP.

The Religious Right has energized the Republican Party over the last 30 years, but given today's shifting social climate, is it becoming an electoral liability for the GOP?

Our panel of student pundits and professional experts will weigh in on the merits of giving voters a stake in the political process via the Christian Right, and what it potentially means for the future of the Republican Party.

Says PolicyMic editor and panel moderator Michael Luciano, "The Religious Right has energized the Republican Party over the last 30 years, but given today's shifting social climate, is it becoming an electoral liability for the GOP?"

Join us to find out.

When: Monday, Nov 11, 6-8pm ET. Check-in begins at 5:00pm and ends at 5:50pm. A reception with light refreshments will follow the conclusion of the debate.
