It is your fundamental right as a citizen of the United States of America to vote. So, why do some policies make it difficult for eligible voters to cast a ballot?

The discussion will include the following speakers:

-Panelist, Gloria Battle, Retired Human Rights Official
-Panelist, Gwyndolen Clarke-Reed, former State House Representative, District 92
-Panelist, Magaly Alvarado, Director, Civic Engagement, Hispanic Unity
-Moderator, Dr. Monica Elliott, President, League of Women Voters of Broward County

Stand Up, Speak Out – Community Conversations series is designed to help empower, give voice and inform marginalized members in our Broward County community, such as immigrants, cost-burdened and impoverished individuals, and members experiencing homelessness, by promoting civic engagement and participation of the democratic process.
