Michael Waldman is president of the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, a nonpartisan law and policy institute that focuses on improving the systems of democracy and justice. He was director of speechwriting for President Bill Clinton from 1995 to 1999 and is the author of The Second Amendment: A Biography, My Fellow Americans, POTUS Speaks, and three other books. 

Waldman is a graduate of Columbia College and NYU School of Law, and he comments widely in the media on law and policy.

Waldman’s bracing account of voting rights and political equality arrives right on time for the 2016 presidential campaign.
