Becker Participates in LGBT Bar Association Webcast on Voter Rights and Voter Suppression

C|M|LAW Professor Susan J. Becker, who serves as President of the Ohio ACLU, participated on September 19, 2012, in a webcast sponsored by the National LGBT Bar Association (an affiliate of the ABA) . Professor Becker addressed the issue of voter suppression in Ohio, the legal challenges to voting restrictions currently being litigated in this state, and the impact of suppression laws across the U.S. on LGBT voters. Former Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner and Lawrence Norden, Deputy Director of the Democracy Program at NYU’s Brennan Center for Justice, were the other featured speakers. The program was broadcast live to National LGBT Bar members (who participated by sending questions via email to the program) and was then sent to 10,000 additional ABA members. The webcast is available here http://www.lgbtbar.org/resources/lecture-series/.   Additional information on voting rights in Ohio is available at http://www.acluohio.org/Vote/default.asp. Information on other states and national issues is available at http://www.brennancenter.org/content/section/category/voting_rights_elections/.
