2019-20 Margaret Levy Public Interest Fellowship: "Defending Democracy"
New Threats to the Right to Vote: Fighting Voter Suppression Over the Past Decade | Talk by Dale Ho, Director of ACLU's Voting Rights Project and UCLA Law's Fall 2019 Margaret Levy Public Interest Fellow
In the past decade, the right to vote has been under assault across the nation. Dale Ho, who plays a critical role in many of the current voting rights battles, will speak on his and the ACLU's efforts to fight voter suppression, including challenging voter ID laws, barriers to voter registration, and felony disenfranchisement in places like Florida, North Carolina, and Kansas. He will also share what the ACLU is doing to ensure greater voter inclusion and participation, and his vision of fully realized voting rights in the 21st century.
The Margaret Levy Public Interest Fellowship is an initiative of the David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy and is made possible by the support of Margaret Levy.
