Voting Rights and Democracy Reform in the States and on the Hill


Monday, April 19, 2021, 4:00pm to 5:00pm


Virtual event, registration required

With Georgia passing legislation to dramatically restrict voting access, and with similar legislation pending in other states, fundamental issues of voting and democracy are now front and center in Congress. A sweeping set of election reforms recently passed the House as H.R. 1 and are now before the Senate. The fate of these efforts, and the future of fundamental Senate procedures such as the legislative filibuster, could be decided in the weeks ahead. Join the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation as we convene advocates from the states and Capitol Hill to discuss what is at stake and the strategies being used in the fight for voting rights and democracy reform.

Speakers include:

Lisa Gilbert, Public Citizen
Wade Henderson, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights
Representative John Sarbanes, Maryland's 3rd Congressional District
Tova Wang (Moderator), Harvard Kennedy School
