Join us for the kickoff of our 2020 Suffrage Centennial Programming, a year long series of programs focused on Women, Politics, & Activism.
The first program will focus on voting rights, how far we have come and how far we still have to go.
Voting is the foundation of our great democracy—but can our democracy function at its greatest when millions of Americans still don’t have access to the ballot?
The Delaware Historical Society invites you to a presentation from the ACLU of Delaware on voting rights in America. Morgan Keller, ACLU-DE’s Communications Manager, will walk you through a brief history of the challenges and triumphs voting rights have seen since our democracy was founded, then lead a discussion about the current state of voting rights. We’ll talk about the groups of people who are most often ineligible to vote, the impact those missing votes have on our government, and what we can do to help ensure every Delawarean, and every American, can fully participate in our democratic process.
