As the 2018 midterm elections grow near, we have reached a critical moment in the national struggle against gerrymandering and voter suppression.
On April 10, The NYU School of Law chapter of the American Constitution Society, along with Team4NC, will host a discussion at NYU to assess the current landscape and explore strategies for moving forward in the fight for voting rights and fair elections.
We will hear from panelists including Irv Joyner, Professor of Law at North Carolina Central University and the Legal Counsel and Chairperson of the Legal Redress Committee of the North Carolina State Branches of the NAACP, as well as David Daley, a Senior Fellow at Fair Vote, former Editor-in-Chief of Salon, and the author of the national bestseller Ratf**ked, The True Story Behind the Secret Plan to Steal America’s Democracy.
Join us to discuss the latest political developments and the status of the key court cases. What can we learn from the experience of advocates in states like North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Washington? How have gerrymandering and voter suppression impacted communities of color in particular? How can we take the initiative nationally not merely to defend, but to expand our democracy?
Further panelists and moderator to be announced.
Tuesday, April 10
