Constitution Day 2019 ⁠— “One Person, One Vote: The Challenge of American Democracy, Past and Present"

September 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm
@ 9:00 pm

Join the ACLU of Maryland and the Maryland Institute College of Art for a discussion of the threats and opportunities facing our democracy. We’ll discuss the many recent voting rights threats that have gained steam under the Trump administration. And we’ll address how racist legacies of the past, like the Jim Crow holdover idea of linking the right to vote to incarceration, continue to threaten democracy today.

Our esteemed speakers for this year’s event are:

  • Bob Moses, Civil Rights Leader, Founder of the Algebra Project
  • DeAnna Hoskins, JustLeadership USA Director
  • Eric Gottesman, Photographer/Artist

The discussion will be moderated by Tom Hall, host of WYPR 88.1 FM’s Midday.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:

  • The location is wheelchair accessible.
  • The event is free to attend, but RSVPing is strongly encouraged.
  • Parking is available on the street or nearby paid parking garages.
