January 18, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Voter suppression is a strategy used to influence the outcome of an election by discouraging or preventing specific groups of people from voting. In 2013, the United States Supreme Court ruled in Shelby v. Holder that voting laws had resulted in voter suppression and discrimination. The AAUW Colorado Springs Branch Public Policy committee members have developed a program to address the means by which voter suppression is manifested in our election process. Deb Walker, Executive Director Citizen’s Project, will lead the program which will include active interaction. All who wish to will participate in discerning and exploring the variety of voter suppression tactics.
