Voting is one of the most powerful tools for social change, but when it comes to marginalized communities, access to a ballot can be both a challenge and an obstacle. In certain areas around the nation, strategies and tactics are used to keep particular communities from voting and influencing the political climate. “The Power of a Ballot” is a conversation that will explore how communities are forced to relinquish their power to vote by being kept out of the voting booths. Panelist will also discuss the many ways that individuals can engage in civic duties and combat injustices.
