Monthly Action Night
Saturday April 6, 2021
The GOTV/VR team will kick it off with actions we can take to protect the voting rights of all Americans.
The battle to protect voting rights in the face of disinformation, big tech and the big lie
The Voting Rights and Democracy group of DAUK Policy Network is hosting fellow DAUK and DA leaders and members working on policy, voter protection and GOTV. Join us as we dive into the big issues of disinformation, big tech, voter fraud conspiracy and voter suppression and learn more on how to make change under our new Democratic administration. We’ll cover how to be a voting rights advocate, recognize and reject disinformation campaigns, and “seize the moment” to support key initiatives advancing voter rights at both the state and federal level.
Film Night: Suppressed
April 16, 2021
Join us to view and discuss the compelling documentary – Suppressed 2020-2021 – about the attacks we face on the foundation of our democracy: the right to vote.
Black Caucus Meeting – Voting Rights Month
Recent events have provided a sad reminder that, whether voters are purged from the polls, to shenanigans at the polls, in courts or state houses, access to the ballot remains under attack.
