DORR Monthly Breakfast at Home: How The Big Lie is Undermining Voting Rights
April 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Democrats of the Red Rocks (DORR) Breakfast at Home will host “How The Big Lie is Undermining Voting Rights” on Thursday, April 15th at 10:00 am on zoom. The zoom link is available on the DORR website https://democratsoftheredrocks.org/index.html.
Darrell Hill, Policy Director for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona, will analyze the impact of voter suppression bills being considered in state legislatures, with a particular focus on Arizona and Georgia. Hill was staff attorney for the ACLU of Arizona and successfully litigated cases concerning voting rights, Arizona’s Free Exercise of Religion Act, public records law, and the First Amendment. He provided testimony to the Arizona Advisory Committee to the US Commission on Civil Rights and helped draft the ACLU’s Education Equity Report on barriers to enrollment in Arizona charter schools. Hill is currently working at the legislature to stop bills that threaten voting rights, reproductive freedom, and LGBTQ rights.
A second speaker–to be announced–is from Declaration for American Democracy, a coalition to take back our democracy and restore power to the people. The speaker will address the three main pillars of the For the People Act: reforming voting and election laws, getting big money out of politics, and holding public officials accountable.
