Voting Rights in the 21st Century – NWU noon Thursday

And you think we’ve got the right to vote?

Bri McLarty: Suffrage in the 21st Century: We’re on Defense – Thursday, March 12, 12:00 p.m. Callen Conference Center

Bri McLarty – Voting Rights Director at Nebraskans for Civic Reform. The 1900s saw movements to expand access to our elections. Starting with the Women’s Suffrage Movement in the early 1900s, activists held rallies, contacted elected officials, wrote op-eds and used civil disobedience to get us to the point where every US citizen had the right to participate in Elections. Today, the descendants of these activists are fighting to protect those very same rights from the latest wave to curb access: voter ID. Co-Sponsored by NWU Multicultural Programs Office, Gender Studies and Political Science Department, and YWCA Lincoln.
