Most New Yorkers have no idea just how antiquated their voting laws are. It often takes an outsider explaining that it doesn’t have to be this way, and it isn’t as hard to vote in other states, for New Yorkers to understand that something might be wrong. Come join us for a panel discussion on how New York fits into the broader national environment of voter suppression and disenfranchisement and how we can push back and rally for change this year!

The Sad State of Voting: The Attack On Our Rights in NY
Moderated by Zachary Roth, author of The Great Suppression: Voting Rights, Corporate Cash, and the Conservative Assault on Democracy

With invited panelists
Damon Daniels, Demos
Julie Ebenstein, ACLU Voting Rights Project

Susan Lerner, Common Cause
Esmeralda Simmons, Center for Law and Social Justice, Medgar Evers College
