Suppressed By Design or Voter Protection Live Virtual Forum

Suppressed By Design or Voter Protection Live Virtual Forum

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, July 19, 2022 / -- Suppressed by Design or Voter Protection is a virtual forum happening live on July 26, 2022, from 7-8:30 pm CDT. Organizers are encouraging the public to participate and make their voices heard. The panel features Wisconsin lawmakers and community leaders and will be moderated by Beverly Taylor, former anchor at Fox 6 News. The forum will stream live on The 411 Live’s YouTube and Facebook pages and include questions submitted by the public via YouTube and Facebook comments.

The goal of the event is to facilitate a productive discussion between Wisconsin voters, community leaders, and lawmakers.

WHY: We are in a time when some state legislatures have passed laws or have proposed laws that some say restrict voting while others say protect voting. The timing of this forum is not an accident. Organizers wanted to give voters plenty to think about before the August and November elections. And
of course, encourage people to vote.

TOPICS: Redistricting, voter protection laws, voter suppression laws, security of absentee ballots, and
barriers to voting.
