Head of DOJ Civil Rights Division Speaks on Voting-Rights Enforcement at NYU

Thomas E. Perez, the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, is speaking today at an academic forum for students and faculty at NYU Law School.  I am the host and moderator for this event.  He will be addressing current controversies concerning enforcement of the Voting Rights Act.  This should be an exciting and major forum for discussion of current voting-rights issues.

Professor Guy Uriel-Charles, Professor of Law, Duke Law School
