After the most participatory election in American history, we are at a crucial time in our democracy. With the 50th Anniversary of the 26th Amendment this year, we have an opportunity to celebrate the power of young voters. Unfortunately, many states have responded with efforts to suppress and restrict voting rights. According to the Brennan Center for Justice, more than 165 restrictive voting bills have been introduced, prefiled, or carried over in 35 states as of February of this year. Many of those bills would have an outsized impact on students voters.
The role of a faculty member is pivotal to ensuring that students are active participants in our democracy. The Faculty Network for Student Voting Rights’ (FacNet) invites you to our first virtual spring retreat Building Beyond Bridges: Fostering Faculty Collaboration, Connection, and Capacity in the Student Voting Space. The retreat will be hosted over five days (April 14, April 15, April 16, April 20, April 21).
Thank you for your interest in attending the Faculty Network's Retreat: Building Bridges: Fostering Faculty Collaboration, Connection, and Capacity in the Student Voting Space. We are excited to have you join us!
