We would love to invite you to join MyVote Project for our virtual panel, “A Conversation About Voting in 2020” on September 30th.
MyVote will host a variety of guests discussing a wide range of topics related to voting rights, the history of suffrage expansion in the United States, and voting in the midst of the most confusing election in most of our lifetimes. Joining us will be Benjamin Bowser, an Emeritus Professor of Sociology from Cal State East Bay, Anita Earls, a civil rights attorney and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina, Damon Huss, editor of the Bill of Rights in Action magazine at Constitutional Rights Foundation and Esmeralda Simmons, Esq., Founder and former Executive Director of the Center for Law and Social Justice at Medgar Evers College.
