October 22: Nashville - Nashville Voting Rights Litigation Training #MCLE

The Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in Shelby County v. Holder effectively nullified a key provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, the most effective civil rights law ever enacted. As a result, until Congress amends the Act, voting rights litigation will be the only path available to minority voters seeking to protect their rights against discriminatory voting laws.
Help respond to this voting rights crisis by joining the American Constitution Society, the Campaign Legal Center and Georgetown Law Center in a half-day training program, taught by some of the most respected voting rights practitioners in the country. An update on pending legislation in Congress responding to the Shelby County decision will also be included.
This training will arm attendees with the tools and tips necessary to become active members of the voting rights bar, and will provide an opportunity for new and returning members of the voting rights community to meet and strategize about the challenges to come. We need you to be part of the next generation of voting rights defenders.
