Demos Sept. 17 Event: “Thinking Boldly about the Right to Vote and the Constitution”


Building durable political power in Black and brown communities is central to advancing an inclusive, multiracial democracy. The right to vote is critical to this goal. Yet so many of us know from our lived experience that the right to vote is not something we all can count on.

Amid today’s political movement—which calls for transformative solutions to the problems of democratic exclusion and economic exploitation—enshrining the right to vote fully and affirmatively in our Constitution is a powerful and durable way to build Black and brown political power and dismantle white supremacy.

On Constitution Day, join us for the second in our Radically Honest Conversations Series as we discuss the right to vote—as it is now and as it should be—with these speakers: 

Ivanna Gonzalez, Deputy Director, Blueprint NC

Andrea James, Executive Director, National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls

Judith Browne Dianis, Executive Director, The Advancement Project

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


  • Laura Williamson, Senior Policy Analyst, Demos
