*** Green Sunday: Voter Suppression 2020 and the Cure ***

A number of states have sought to make it harder for Americans to vote, especially since the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision, Shelby County v. Holder, which invalidated core protections of the Voting Rights Act. Studies have shown that laws passed by these states did indeed lower voter turnout, especially among voters of color. Please join us tonight to learn about several of the ways in which voter suppression takes place, and what can be done in response.
