    CIVICS 201 : Voter Suppression and Disenfranchisement

    "CIVICS 201 : Voter Suppression and Disenfranchisement"

    Saturday, January 29, 2022 ::: 10 pm ET

    Listen Line: (347) 838-9852

    WE are facing a tidal wave of restrictive voting legislation across the country and the trend will continue into 2022.

    Tonight we present some of the information you need to translate and interpret these efforts in your state. How much do you really know about voter suppression and disenfranchisement happening in your state? Enough to organize and initiate the kind of mobilization needed to resist with effective push-back tools? How do you translate what you are being told by your state representatives as opposed to the reality of the legislative actions being taken?

    If you are not engaged in some activity of resisting these oppressive moves, now is the time. Now. Months from now will be too late.
