Voting Rights in an Election Year for Communities of Color
With alarming levels of anti-immigrant sentiment and pivotal racial and economic justice issues on the line, we are in the midst of a presidential campaign with much at stake for communities of color. Though we’ve made important strides to defend the voting rights of our communities, there is still much to be done.
Our panel will speak about the challenges and issues creating barriers to the minority vote leading up to the 2016 general election. Attendees will hear about the work being done on the ground to break down those barriers, as well as the opportunity to learn about ways to practically engage in the work to protect and promote voting rights.
