African Americans, women, the disability community and other marginalized groups have hard-won struggles for basic voting rights, but these challenges are not a thing of the past. In fact, the last few years have seen a rash of voter suppression laws/tactics such as voter roll purges and unnecessarily complex ID requirements.
Camille Wimbish will give us an overview of these current issues, as well as some insight into important statewide election protection efforts and reforms.
Register to vote for the 2020 Ohio primaries and general election.
