As the U.S. headed toward its 2022 midterm elections and political debates intensify, the issues that organizations are facing became more complicated and delicate. Understanding your audiences, the issues, and how they intersect can help you be fully prepared to navigate this complex political environment.

On October 20, 2022, Edelman Global Advisory hosted the first of three moderated discussions to explore the key issues influencing voters – why they matter, how they matter and key inflection points to be mindful of. This session was moderated by Jeremy S. Thompson, EGA Vice President and former Harris for President Social Media Director, and featured Andrea Hagelgans, Edelman's Managing Director, Social Issues Engagement and CCO for former NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and Marty Reiser, EGA Senior Advisor and former Policy Director for Rep. Steve Scalise.
