Party For Your Right to Vote
This Is What Democracy Looks Like: Movement for Voting Rights Restoration is a virtual event looking at criminal disenfranchisement laws that strip voting rights from people with past convictions, excluding millions of Americans from participating in our democratic process. These laws have a disproportionate impact on communities of color. In this online event, the Brennan Center for Justice brings together advocates from across the country for a conversation about recent developments in voting rights restoration. They will discuss the connection between disenfranchisement and protests over police violence and systemic racism and the future of the movement nationwide. To register for this free event on Aug. 13 from 10 to 11am go to: https://www.brennancenter.org/events/what-democracy-looks-movement-voting-rights-restoration ( Carolyn Carlson)
