    The Right to Vote: Historical and Contemporary Struggles for Democracy

    Please join Facing History and Ourselves at Freedom House on October 18, 2018 for The Right to Vote: Historical and Contemporary Struggles for Democracy. The right to vote is central to participation in a democracy but access to the ballot box is not always available to all Americans. The struggle to earn the right to vote has been central to civil rights movements throughout United States history. Contemporary concerns over the security of voting rights also expose the fragility of democracy and the need for an informed and active citizenry.
