A Voting Rights Town Hall from the ACLU
Oct 18th, 2020 by theallianceparty
This week we re-broadcast a “Voting Rights Town Hall,” which was presented by the ACLU on October 14, 2020. This town hall features the Executive Director of the ACLU, Anthony D. Romero, and his discussion with former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. The topic of the discussion is “Voting in a pandemic, what’s at stake for civil liberties, and concrete actions you can take to stay involved through Election Day.”
During the one-hour town hall, former Attorney General Holder and Director Romero discuss the history of disenfranchisement, particularly for Black voters, the ACLU's efforts to expand access to voting by mail in this election, and how we can fight future efforts to suppress the vote by influencing the redistricting process in state jurisdictions.
