Virtual Event: Uncounted: The Crisis of Voter Suppression in America – Mar 31

Posted by Brennan Center for Justice on March 29, 2022

The book Uncoun­ted exam­ines the phenomenon of disen­fran­chise­ment through the lens of history, race, law, and the demo­cratic process. Author Gilda R. Daniels, who served as a deputy chief in the Justice Depart­ment’s Civil Rights Divi­sion and has more than two decades of voting rights exper­i­ence, argues that voter suppres­sion works in cycles, constantly adapt­ing and find­ing new ways to hinder access for an expo­nen­tially grow­ing minor­ity popu­la­tion. She warns that a premed­it­ated strategy of restrict­ive laws and decept­ive prac­tices has taken root and is erod­ing the very basis of Amer­ican demo­cracy ― the right to vote.

Join Daniels and Wendy Weiser, vice pres­id­ent of the Bren­nan Center’s Demo­cracy Program, to discuss the book and the voter suppres­sion crisis.
