Voting Rights in America Past and Present

Voting Rights in America Past and Present

Speaking Engagement

The national conversation about voter access and voting rights in this Presidential election year continues. The challenge of conducting the election during a pandemic adds a new dimension. In addition, the recent death of Congressman John Lewis, an iconic civil rights champion and advocate for voting rights protections, underscores the reach and centrality of voter access, past and present, in our democracy. Please join us for a program exploring the historical underpinnings and current controversies surrounding access to the vote. We will begin with a presentation that places the historical effort to establish and protect minority voting rights in America in context, and then explore current voting issues.

Speakers will include:

  • Debo Adegbile, WilmerHale
  • Kristen Clarke, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
  • Dale Ho, ACLU Voting Rights Project
  • Justin Levitt, Loyola Law School
