The 19th in Conversation

Who Will Decide the 2024 Election?

Originally aired on Oct. 18, 2023

What are the issues motivating potential voters, and how will these be addressed in the election year ahead? What are the barriers to voting around the country, and how can engaged citizens overcome them? 

The 19th, the nation’s first nonprofit newsroom at the intersection of gender, politics and policy, strives to empower audiences with the information, resources and community they need to be equal participants in our democracy. One year out from the 2024 presidential election, The 19th visited the Diane von Furstenberg Studios in New York City for a bold and urgent event on civic engagement and voting rights. 

Together with a powerful lineup of leaders, we discussed the state of the new electorate of young voters, women of color, and LGBTQ+ people. Dive in for all you need to know ahead of the election year.
