Vote Like Your Rights Depend on It!

October 24, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-5

Dred Scott v. Sanford. Plessy v. Ferguson. Brown versus the Board of Education. Roe V. Wade. Proposition 8.  Voting Rights Act of 1965. Each of these legal decisions profoundly affected the lives of millions of Americans. Racial inequality. Segregation. A women’s right to choose. Marriage equality. Eliminating voter suppression. All were set in motion due to elections which ultimately put specific judges and legislators in place. Those votes were placed by citizens just as there exist today whose lives will be directly affected by the 2020 choice of a U.S. President, a Senate majority, and very likely, a new lifetime member of the  United States Supreme Court.

Please join us for a frank conversation about the effect voting has had on past, present and future American citizens who, to this day, depend on the ballot box to affirm their human right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
