Voting Rights: The Purge Case » Columbus

Ohio has a policy of removing eligible voters from the registry simply because they are exercising their right not to vote. Our voter purge case is going all the way to the Supreme Court this fall, and our legal team is committed to protecting voting rights for all eligible Ohioans. Naila Awan, a civil and human rights lawyer with Demos, and former ACLU of Ohio attorney, will lead a discussion on the current state of voting rights, the injustices of voter disenfranchisement, and how we can do our part to make sure everyone can access the ballot.
