On Thursday, Nov. 10, DePaul will host an election-week conversation on "Voting rights: Bridging research and action." All members of the campus community are welcome to register and attend to engage in a scholarly and Vincentian conversation around voting rights and social justice.

Ami Gandhi, senior counsel at Chicago Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights, will serve as the keynote speaker. Gandhi will discuss her work, focused on reducing barriers to voting and on improving civic participation, especially in communities of color and low-income communities.

DePaul faculty Noah Praetz, Christina Rivers and Mark Weber will discuss their research and activism related to voting rights for adults who are formerly or currently incarcerated, people with disabilities and concerns related to election management and cybersecurity.
