Countering voter suppression requires knowledge about not only what our rights are today, but where we've come from to get here. That's why the ACLU of Alabama is partnering with the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute to host Right to the Ballot: Then and Now, an event focusing on the legacy of voter suppression in Alabama.
The program will include presentations on the history of voter disenfranchisment and gerrymandering, the modernization of voter suppression since the Supreme Court ruling in Shelby v. Holder, and an overview of the ACLU of Alabama's Midterms Voter Guide.
Join us on October 4, 2018 at 5pm to learn more about this important issue. There will be light food and drinks provided.
