Join OPA and expert panelists next Friday for an important discussion on modern-day voter suppression and its role in the 2020 elections amid added obstacles caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Voting is one of the most fundamental rights in our democracy, yet the United States has a long history of voter suppression. Oftentimes, minorities and communities of color are deliberately excluded from the electoral process.
