Laura W. Brill is an attorney, former law clerk to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, mother of two young adults, and an activist for youth voting rights. An award-winning advocate with more than two decades of experience working on complex legal issues and advocating for voting rights and for the LGBTQ+ community, she launched The Civics Center in 2018 to stop youth voter suppression and tackle the decades-old problem of low youth turnout. The Civics Center is a project of Community Partners, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization.

Andy Thorburn has a varied background as an entrepreneur, fundraiser,  political candidate, high school English teacher, and union activist. He is founder of the Contemporary Policy Institute, a nonpartisan, education-focused nonprofit that provides a factual framework of salient issues such as public education, women’s rights, immigration, gun control and others. The mission of the Public School Defenders Hub, a subsidiary of the Contemporary Policy Institute, is to proactively reduce the proliferation and detrimental impacts of anti-public school extremists.
