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! 


The ACLU, now in its one hundredth year as the premier defender of a broad range of American civil rights and civil liberties, has been at the forefront of protecting our rights under the Trump administration, and they’ve listed voting rights as being one of their top priorities.

Do you want to find out what the ACLU are doing to strike down gerrymandering, and hold the former Georgia Sec of State accountable for his actions in the midterms? Are you interested in learning how the ACLU are working to make voting easier across the country
 through its People Power program, and how you can help with these important voting protection programs?
Join the call and send in your questions early so that we can cover as many as possible!

You can send questions for our guest until March 25, 12 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada) to [email protected]. Please include your name, country, and voting state.

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.


We look forward to seeing you on the call!
