The event will dig deeper into the Index and highlight how polling and research can guide messaging and branding in holding participants in the January 6 insurrection accountable.

WASHINGTON, D.C.  – On Friday, January 21, Public Wise and Change Research will host The Insurrection Index: Using Data-Driven Decisions to Restore Public Trust and Ensure Accountability for the 2021 Attack on the United States Capitol. The  webinar will feature Public Wise’s Christina Baal-Owens, Executive Director; Dr. Jessica Kalbfeld, Director of Research; Eli Szenes-Strauss, Political Director; and Change Research’s Flora Mendoza, Director of Accounts, and Stephen Clermont, the Director of Polling. 

Earlier this month, Public Wise, a voting rights organization which works to secure a government that reflects the will and protects the rights of the people, launched an online, searchable database available to the public cataloguing the individuals and organizations involved in the attempted coup at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. The Insurrection Index serves as a tool for the public, organizations, and the media to hold these individuals accountable for their role in the insurrection and keep them out of public office. 

The webinar will be hosted by Change Research’s Stephen Clermont and Flora Mendoza. The conversation will showcase the Insurrection Index and its findings and demonstrate how polling and research contribute to message development, branding, and targeting in the fight to hold 1/6 participants accountable for their role in an attempted coup. 

WHAT: Change Research’s The Insurrection Index: Using Data-Driven Decisions to Restore Public Trust and Ensure Accountability for the 2021 Attack on the United States Capitol, a webinar to discuss Public Wise’s Insurrection Index and the critical role polling and research plays in keeping insurrectionists out of office and in raising awareness around voting rights.
