Good Governance Symposium Series- Session I: Voting Rights

March 1 @ 6:00 pm EST

As our nation sees unprecedented levels of partisanship division, now more than ever, thoughtful non-partisan discussion of public policy issues and topics is essential. It is a role the League of Women Voters is both committed to and well positioned to execute. This series will promote education and awareness relating to critical good government issues that impact national, state and local governance through five sessions. 

Session I: Voting Rights

This important first session will lay the stage for our entire series. We will explore the history of the Voting Rights Act, attempts to dismantle the legislation, including the impacts of Shelby County v. Holder (2013), recent voting restrictions and solutions to move forward and ensure every person has a voice. 

Keynote: Leah Aden, Deputy Director of Litigation at the NAACP Legal Defense & Education Fund (LDF)

Panelists: 

  • Susan Dunn, Executive Director, ACLU of South Carolina
  • Lynn Teague, Vice President of Issues and Action, League of Women Voters South Carolina
