National Teleconference -Tracking Voter Suppression in the 2012 Elections - Tuesday, April 24th

New America Media, Event, Dana Levine, Posted: Apr 10, 2012

Since the beginning of 2011, we have seen a surge in suppressive voting laws, with 24 laws and executive actions passing in 17 states. Together, these laws could make it harder for millions of voters — particularly minority, immigrant, the elderly, and the young — to cast ballots in the 2012 elections. Between April and November, NAM will partner with the Brennan Center and other national research and advocacy organizations to host monthly teleconference calls, produce weekly columns and alerts, and host roundtables in key states. The goal is to build a collective news and advocacy platform in the ethnic media sector to counter voter suppression efforts and ensure every eligible voter can vote.
