The event creator says
Washington Voting Rights Act: From Selma to Yakima
Thursday April 9th || 5:30-8:00pm

=============================================

Today we have an opportunity, to ensure fair representation for communities of color in elected office and to break down the barriers to voting justice. The Washington Voting Rights Act (WVRA) will give Washingtonians the opportunity to fairly elect candidates and will honor the legacy of the national Voting Rights Act. While folks are talking about this bill in Olympia, we need to be talking about this in our communities and it's importance to communities of color.

Join us in a community forum to learn more about the fight for voting rights and true representation for communities of color in 1965 and today.

=============================================

::Program::

I. Honoring the History: Panel on the National Voting Rights Act in 1965
II. Voting Rights & Racial Inequity: How are racist structures and institutions influencing the right to vote?
III. Action: Series of actions that we can take now to pass the WVRA and ensure true representation for our community
