Stealing Democracy Conversation

  • Caffè Lena 47 Phila Street Saratoga Springs, NY, 12866 United States (map)

In Our Name Initiative and MLK Saratoga are sponsoring a community conversation on the theme of “Stealing Democracy.” A panel of local community members, activists, writers and thought leaders will discuss voter suppression and disenfranchisement and the threat it poses to our democratic order.

Featured Speakers:

  • Justine P. Harrison, the former legal director of the ACLU of Louisiana and now the Legal Committee Chair for New York Civil Liberties Union Albany chapter.

  • Laura Bierman, Executive Director of the League of Women Voters of New York State

Carol Anderson’s recently published book, One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying Our Democracy will serve as the main focal point of the evening’s conversation. Copies of the book will be made available for purchase at the event.

Free and open to all.

The League of Women Voters of Saratoga County will have a voter registration table at this event.
