Join Working Assets, Mother Jones magazine, People For the American Way Foundation, Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Equal Justice Society, True Majority, AlterNet.org, Business Leaders for Sensible Priorities, and others to learn about opportunities to help protect voting rights in key states on November 2. Participants in this outdoor rally and training will receive an update on efforts to prevent minority disenfranchisement and intimidation at the polls, challenges posed by computer voting systems and an overview of the key states where voting rights are at greatest risk.
After a one-hour program, participants will attend outdoor training sessions in small groups led by top civil rights groups. Specialized training will be provided for lawyers, law students and clergy. Bring your family and friends. No commitment required, just a devotion to democracy and a dedication to a fair and free election.
