​Protect the Polls​ - ​Voting Rights in the Age of Trump

Join the ACLU of PA at the 2018 Philadelphia Chapter's annual meeting, featuring Dale Ho, director of the Voting Rights Project at the ACLU. Dale supervises the ACLU’s voting rights litigation and advocacy work nationwide.

WHEN: Thursday, May 24, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
WHERE: Moore College of Art and Design, 1916 Race St (near 20th Street and The Parkway) Philadelphia

In March of 2018, Dale argued in federal court in Fish v. Kobach, a trial over a law that disenfranchised tens of thousands of voters in Kansas. During the two week trial, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach attempted to defend not just his signature legislation, which requires people to show documentary proof of citizenship such as a birth certificate or passport when registering to vote, but to support his claim of rampant voter fraud. Kobach's voter repression efforts failed spectacularly on both scores. Hear Dale's report back here.

In addition to hearing from Dale, Executive Director Reggie Shuford will speak about the ACLU of PA's work to defend civil liberties, including our work toward Criminal Justice Reform. 

The Philadelphia Chapter will honor Josh Glenn, co-founder of Youth Art and Self-Empowerment Project, with the Torchbearer Award. 

The Torchbearer Award is given to an individual who works  to protect the civil liberties of people in their community. The ACLU-PA is committed to defending the rights and freedoms of the people in Pennsylvania, and the Philadelphia Chapter Board of the ACLU-PA recognizes individuals who exemplify this mission in the Philadelphia region.

This event is free and open to the public.
