      EVENT DETAILS
      Virtual Lillian Wald Symposium: Who Gets to Vote?

      In honor of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage—of which Henry Street Settlement founder Lillian Wald was a prominent advocate—join us for a lively discussion of who gets to vote—from 1920 to the present—and whom the 19th Amendment left behind, including disenfranchised African American and immigrant communities, formerly (and currently) incarcerated people, and others impacted by voter suppression. Featuring Sean Morales-Doyle, deputy director of the Brennan Center for Justice; Public Historian Dominique Jean-Louis, Wennie Chin, senior manager of civic engagement with the New York Immigration Coalition; and introductory remarks by NYC Councilwoman Carlina Rivera. This will be a virtual event held on Zoom. RSVP to get the Zoom link: henrystreet.org/waldsymposium
