UCLA Voting Rights Project Dec. 8 & 9 Conference: Crafting a New Voting Rights Act for the 21st Century

This has a great lineup:

The UCLA Voting Rights Project, in conjunction with the UCLA Latino Politics and Policy Initiative, is facilitating a discussion of experts and practitioners to develop key provisions for this generation’s Voting Right Act that build on the great success of the 1965 Voting Rights Act but augments it to address current challenges.  

Please join us for a multi-day roundtable starting this December to begin work on our generation’s Voting Rights Act. This event will feature keynote speakers California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, Congressman Marc Veasey, and Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie M. Gorbea. Panels will cover topics such as vote dilution and redistricting; congressional enforcement of the 15th, 19th, 24th, and 26th Amendments; procedural roadblocks; and voting rights remedies.

The event will be held remotely over the course of two days, December 8 & 9 and thereafter additional sessions will be scheduled over the following months to address particular issues. Sessions will feature panelist/discussion leaders and will be followed by a Q & A.
