Voting Rights: Bridging Research and Action
Join us during Election Week for an engaging and important keynote and conversation on voting rights in the United States. Keynote speaker Ami Gandhi, Chicago Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights, will share her work focused on reducing barriers to voting and improving civic participation, especially in communities of color and low-income communities. Then, DePaul professors Christina Rivers, Mark Weber, and Noah Praetz will facilitate a reflection and dialogue incorporating their own research and activism related to voting rights – for community member who are formerly or currently incarcerated (Rivers), for those with disabilities (Weber), and concerns related to election management and cybersecurity (Praetz). This 90-minute session will bring together the university community to engage in a scholarly and Vincentian conversation around voting rights and social justice. This event is co-sponsored by the Society of Vincent de Paul Professors, the Office of Research Services, the School of Public Service, the Women's Center, and the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center.
