Voting Rights Forum

It is my pleasure to invite you to a Voting Rights Forum that I am hosting TOMORROW, Friday May 20, at East Los Angeles College from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. At this important event, called “Protect Your Future: Restore the Vote”, we’ll discuss the threats to our voting rights following the Supreme Court’s Shelby County decision in 2013, which gutted key parts of the Voting Rights Act, as well as efforts at the federal level to protect our most fundamental right: the right to vote.
