About the event

Voting Rights Restoration

Be a part of consequential dialogue to reverse the horrendously harmful effects of Shelby v. Holder. Can full voting rights be restored with a Presidential Executive Order? What can we, as individuals and members of the NAACP and other civil rights organizations, do to encourage Congress to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2021? Engage in discussions surrounding the linkage between Selma, where it began, to Shelby, where we are today. What will Shelby’s legacy be in 50 years? How do we change it?

#HipHop50: Fight the Power for the Culture

Workshop participants will discuss Hip Hop culture’s connection to the 1960s youth-led civil

rights movement, as we celebrate the 50 th  anniversary of the culture. An intergenerational panel

will explore Hip Hop culture as a strategic tool in shifting the paradigm of today’s voting rights


Addressing the Issues of Disabled and other Marginalized People

In this session, participants will discuss the implications and ramifications of voter suppression on the disabled and other marginalized communities. The panel will dialogue about the effects on the disabled, seniors, and others with mobility and transportation issues of limiting absentee and early voting opportunities. Discussions will also involve the history of the "other" federal civil rights legislation, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); how it has evolved in the 30 years since its enactment and where it stands today.
