Wednesday, October 6th at 7:30 pm PROFESSOR JAMES COLL will be our guest speaker.
Voting rights are under attack nationwide as some states are accused of passing voter suppression laws. These laws would lead to significant burdens for eligible voters trying to exercise their most fundamental constitutional right. These laws include cuts to early voting, voter ID laws, and purges of voter rolls.
Professor Coll holds a bachelors degree in history from Hofstra University and a masters degree in history from Hunter College, is an adjunct professor of constitutional history at Hofstra. He will be speaking on the voting rights issues from a constitutional perspective and will explain why voting has become a major source of friction between the Republican and Democratic parties.
