Flights & Rights Spokane - Voting Rights

Date: 
Tuesday, May 21, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Location: 
The McGinnity Room
Join us for the first Flights & Rights in Spokane of 2019, our community series featuring important civil rights issues and great beer at The McGinnity Room! Ten years ago, the ACLU and allies celebrated the passage of the Voting Rights Restoration Act, which automatically restored voting rights for many people returning to the community after a felony conviction. We have seen great strides in voting rights, but many Washington residents still face barriers when participating in one of the cornerstones of our democracy.

In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the passage of the Voting Rights Restoration Act, Staff Attorney Breanne Schuster will be joined by allies to discuss how far we have come, the challenges ahead, and ongoing work to defend the right to vote. Join us and learn how you can get involved.
