    DA Speaker Series: Susan Herman

    Join Democrats Abroad on Wednesday, March 27th from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm Eastern Time (DC time) as we speak with Susan Herman, President of the ACLU, in a voter protection event.

    Note: this is an online event, so you will need an internet connection in order to attend.  Also, don't forget about the time change in the US! 

    We'll talk to President Herman about the role of the ACLU in voter protection work across the US and how Democrats Abroad can get involved in protecting our votes, and those of Americans in the US too.

    About our speaker: 

    Susan N. Herman was elected President of the American Civil Liberties Union in October 2008, after having served on the ACLU National Board of Directors, as a member of the Executive Committee, and as General Counsel.

    The American Civil Liberties Union, now in its one hundredth year as the premier defender of a broad range of American civil rights and civil liberties, currently lists voting rights as one its top priorities.  The ACLU is working through litigation, proposed legislation, and ballot referenda to enhance access to voting for all and to end anti-democratic processes like gerrymandering.  Learn about these efforts and the ACLU’s new community organizing program, People Power, which seeks to enlist volunteers to promote voting rights through state-specific programs.

    Herman holds a chair as Centennial Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School, where she teaches courses in Constitutional Law and Criminal Procedure, and seminars on Law and Literature, and Terrorism and Civil Liberties.
