Fels was privileged to host Senator Elizabeth Warren for their Public Policy in Practice speaker series on Friday, November 6. Moderated by Distinguished Fellow Elizabeth Vale, the conversation was guided by questions submitted by Fels students. Senator Warren shared her thoughts on healthcare, student loan cancellation, and the recent presidential election, “In this election, people proved that nothing was going to stop us from making our voices heard, and our votes count. So, here’s what we know: Voters decide.”

Senator Warren praised Master of Public Administration students for their commitment to public service and counseled them to “dream big, fight hard” in their future careers. Participants were even treated to a guest appearance by Senator Warren’s dog, Bailey.

The second half of the evening was a conversation with political media strategist Chris Sautter who shared insight on the presidential election, the future of the democratic and republican parties, and his thoughts on the pandemic.
