He will be joined by AALDEF Democracy Program director Jerry Vattamala to discuss the history of the Voting Rights Act, the role of courts in restricting the right to vote, and how Asian Americans and other communities of color are fighting to restore this landmark civil rights legislation. A Q&A and book signing will follow the presentation.
