Flights & Rights - Voting Rights in Spokane

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
The McGinnity Room
Flights & Rights is our community series featuring important civil rights issues and great beer at The McGinnity Room! Ten years ago, the ACLU and allies celebrated the passage of the Voting Rights Restoration Act, which automatically restored voting rights for many people returning to the community after a felony conviction. We have seen great strides in voting rights, but many Washington residents still face barriers when participating in one of the cornerstones of our democracy.

In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the passage of the Voting Rights Restoration Act, Staff Attorney Breanne Schuster was joined by Rae Lynn Barden (Seattle Public Libraries) and Dave Reynolds (Access 4 All Spokane) to discuss how far we have come, the challenges ahead, and ongoing work to defend the right to vote.
