Challenging Regressive Voting Rights Policies: A discussion with Nancy Abudu, Interim Director of Strategic Litigation & Deputy Legal Director for the Voting Rights Program for the Southern Poverty Law Center

September 27 @ 12:45 pm - 1:30 pm
WCC 1010 Classroom
Free

Across the country, a concerted assault on voting rights is taking place. Since the Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 – one of the most successful pieces of civil rights legislation designed to increase voter registration, turnout and fair electoral schemes – we have seen a proliferation of policies that do just the opposite. In response, the Southern Poverty Law Center and partner organizations have mounted a massive campaign to challenge these regressive policies, improve access to the ballot box, and demand government accountability. Nancy will address these issues and many more as we delve deeper into the 2021 redistricting cycle and gear up for the 2022 mid-term election season.

Take-away lunch will be provided at the end of the program.

RSVP to attend.
