Presented by Maya Contreras

In her lecture, Maya Contreras will examine the policies that weaken and threaten our democracy through voter disenfranchisement, gerrymandering, and voter suppression. She will suggest strategies to create fair electoral maps, close voting gaps, and enfranchise voters across the United States.
