ACS Los Angeles: Racial Justice and the Law Part II- Voting Rights
Join the ACS Los Angeles, Austin, Bay Area, Chicago, DC, and San Diego Lawyer Chapters and the Mexican American Bar Association for the second panel of our series on uplifting the research, scholarship, and work of BIPOC attorneys, advocates, and scholars from across the United States. The series is intended for lawyers and the general public alike and designed to promote understanding of racial justice issues and systemic racism within the context of the law. We hope that all attendees will leave the event with a solid understanding of key reforms that can address inequities and systemic racism that exist within various areas of the law and the key ways to implement them.
This panel will provide a brief history of voter suppression and focus on how the 2020 election in particular presents new challenges for Black voters. The panelists will provide recommendations on how to dismantle voter suppression.
