The Black Law Students Association (BLSA) invites you to attend the A Critical Examination of Voting Rights Under the Law panel discussion on Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016, at 7 p.m. Our featured panelists are Ms. Khyla D. Craine, Assistant General Counsel of the NAACP; and Professor Paul Moke, Volunteer Legal Counsel at the ACLU of Ohio, Adjunct Professor at the University of Dayton School of Law and Professor of Criminal Justice & Political Science at Wilmington College and Mr. Gary Daniels, Chief Lobbyist of the ACLU of Ohio. All panelists have distinguished experience litigating and or advocating on behalf of civil rights in the election context.

The focus of this panel will be on voter identification laws in anticipation of the upcoming election. We will also focus on the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the Equal Protection Clause, voter suppression, and other issues that unduly burden and discriminate against the right to vote by African-Americans.
