The New York Democratic Lawyers Council (NYDLC) - is a coalition of Democratic attorneys, law students, and voting rights advocates dedicated to fostering universal participation and trust in the electoral process. NYDLC members care deeply about our precious and hard-fought civil and political rights and volunteer their legal and advocacy skills to ensure that:

  1. all eligible persons can register to vote easily;
  2. all registered voters can vote conveniently, fairly, and without intimidation; and,
  3. all votes are counted accurately by transparent and reliable voting systems.

Education and Community Empowerment - NYDLC advocates bring the issue of voting rights to the forefront of civic discourse. We convene CLE programs for attorneys and panel discussions on issues relevant to our mission. We partner with community groups, political clubs, district leaders, and other civic organizations to raise awareness about the importance of participating in our democracy. NYDLC's CLE Committee and Minority Voting Rights Committee drive our education and community empowerment programming.
