1/30: NYDLC Minority Voting Rights Committee: "Caucus Weekend" Planning Call

 Join NYDLC on Monday., Jan. 30th for a "Caucus Weekend" Planning Call!  

"Caucus Weekend" is Fri. Feb 17- Sun. Feb 19 (see the official schedule here). NYDLC members will join the 46th Annual legislative conference of the New York State Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators to highlight the importance of minority voting rights. If you are thinking of attending, please join this planning call. 

Voting is a fundamental right. But throughout U.S. history and even today, state legislatures and other institutions have raised barriers that make it difficult for certain communities to exercise these core civil rights. Regardless of the motive offered for the restriction, the result is the same--rights of eligible voters are infringed and the political will of the electorate is suppressed. Modernizing voter access and improving civic engagement will strengthen our democracy, making it more representative and responsive to the needs of our communities. 

NYDLC continues to advocate for convenient pro-voter reforms like bringing Early Vote to New York (a goal NYDLC has pursued for several years), revolutionizing the way we register voters by enacting a system of automatic voter registration, same-day registration, simplified ballot design, registration portability, online registration, pre-registration for the next generation of voters, and more. But these are big priorities, and we can't achieve them without your relentless dedication, active participation, and continued support. 

Please RSVP below and you will receive credentials for the Caucus Weekend Planning Call.
