CONNECTED: Legislative Session Recap

Tuesday, June 15, 2021
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM (EDT)
Zoom Meeting - Register for Link!


South Carolina’s 2021 legislative session started with a law banning most abortions and ended with passage of bills expanding gun rights and resuming the death penalty.

As the session ended May 13th, Democrats and Republicans had very different views of the session’s outcomes.

Democrats accused Republicans of prioritizing “red meat” issues that don’t impact most South Carolinians’ day-to-day lives, while Republicans said they fulfilled the will of voters following an election that gave the GOP their largest majorities ever in the House and Senate.

Columbia-based statehouse reporters Seanna Adcox and Jamie Lovegrove will join Executive Editor Mitch Pugh and Politics Editor Schuyler Kropf to discuss the session with Together SC members. You can even submit questions in advance when you register. 


  • Seanna Adcox, assistant Columbia bureau chief
  • Jamie Lovegrove, political reporter
  • Schuyler Kropf, Politics Editor
  • Mitch Pugh, Executive Editor


Each of our CONNECTED sessions is an opportunity for Together SC members to build relationships with The Post & Courier team.

All session are free of charge and open to staff and board members of current Together SC member organizations.
