Green Sunday (5:00 pm, 10/11): Voter Suppression 2020 and the Cure

Green Sunday (5:00 pm, 10/11): Voter Suppression 2020 and the Cure

A number of states have sought to make it harder for Americans to vote, especially since the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision, Shelby County v. Holder, which invalidated core protections of the Voting Rights Act. Studies have shown that laws passed by these states did indeed lower voter turnout, especially among voters of color. Please join us tonight to learn about several of the ways in which voter suppression takes place, and what can be done in response.

Andrea Miller is Founding Board Member and Executive Director, People Demanding Action; Founding President, National Women’s Political Caucus of Virginia; Founding Tri-Chair, Virginia Poor People’s Campaign and a member of the Democracy and Governance working group of the Virginia Green New Deal.

Please help distribute Green Voter Guides around town, or door-to-door!

You can take some of them along with you, wherever you happen to be going and leave them at laundromats, some restaurants and bookstores, etc. — wherever other free papers are given away. Or, you can pass them out in person, or door-to-door, or possibly at some rallies which are still taking place (etc.). If you live in (or near) Oakland, please call Michael Rubin or Jan Arnold at 436-3722 to arrange to get some Voter Guides. If you live in (or near) Berkeley, please call our office phone number, 644-2293 (preferably 24 hours in advance) and we’ll then leave the Voter Guides for you to pick up on the porch of our office at 2022 Blake St. in Berkeley. (Note: Please specify the number of voter guides you’d like — there are 100 voter guides in a bundle.)

Green Voter Guides are also available on line!
