Breaking Barriers to Voting: An Ongoing Advocacy
Organizer: The Coelho Center at LMU Loyola Law School
California has experienced a resurgence in voter turnout thanks to intersectional leaders working together to increase participation in elections. In 2018, we saw the first implementation of the Voter's Choice Act, a new law that seeks to find common solutions to break barriers to voting based on disability, limited English proficiency, economic status, racial divisions and more. Yet, as advocates successfully turn each corner on their journey to develop a fair and just election system, they still encounter roadblocks, examples of voter suppression and attempts to break their coalitions.
Join the Coelho Center to hear from leading election advocates about how they are navigating the intersecting similarities in their quest for equitable ballot access.
