Voting Is Power

ORGANIZEMOBILIZEVOTE (13)Voting Is Power: Expand and Protect the Right to Vote
An End Voter Suppression Event

Wednesday, October 24, 2018 (Evening)

TIME: 6:30-8:30pm

EVENT TYPE: Speaker Reception

As we celebrate, organize, and mobilize for the midterms this November, we have to remember there are far too many for whom the right to vote is inaccessible, if not denied entirely. Join Platform and the WNDC GOTV Committee at “Voting Is Power: Expand and Protect the Right to Vote” on October 24 at 6:30 pm, to learn from leaders working to protect and expand not only the right to vote on paper but also the accessibility of voting in practice. The event will begin with words from our distinguished speakers and then move to round table discussions on how we can get involved in the movement.

Then, on November 6, let’s elect leaders who will work to end voter suppression in every election that follows, whether it is convenient for their ballot or not. The midterm elections are not the end, they are an opportunity. Let’s not miss it.

Speakers include:

  • Carrie Wade, Disability Rights Advocate
  • Hope Giselle, Transgender Rights Advocate, The AllowMe Movement
  • Nicole Porter, Director of Advocacy, The Sentencing Project
  • George Hornedo, Senior Policy Advisor, Let America Vote

PRICE: This event is free, but registration is required.
