IGNITING CHANGE

The Fight For Voting Rights and the 2018 Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference.”

On September 11th, 2018, from 12:00–1:00 PM EDT, radio show host Barbara Arnwine, founder and president of the Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) , previewed two great programs being held to promote strategies for fighting for voting rights during the 2018 Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference on Wednesday, September 12th.

Barbara began the show in remembrance of the 17th Anniversary of 9/11 and the first responders who risked their lives saving people, and recounted visiting New York City, near the attacks, two days afterward, where ash was still falling from the sky. Barbara retold that as she walked through the clouds of ash, people were showing around pictures of loved ones, asking if anyone had seen them.

Barbara’s expert guests included Kimberly Delk, 2018-2019 National Attorney General, National Black Law Students Association (NBLSA); Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes; and Breon Wells, CEO, The Daniel Initiative.

Barbara and Kimberly explored the following questions during the first part of the show: What is the 2018 Agenda of the National Black Law Students Association?; How does the National Attorney General effectuate this work?; Why has NBLSA chosen to focus on Voter Protection?; Who are the presenters for this Forum?; What will attendees gain by joining this forum?

During the second part of the show, Barbara, Senator Hughes, and Breon Wells will discuss many issues including, What has been the WorkPlan of the National Commission for Voter Justice?; What is the focus of the Presentation and Speak Out?; Who is on this program?; How can attendees participate in the Speak Out?; What will attendees gain by attending this session?; Why has the National Commission for Voter Justice declared a State of Voting Rights Emergency? These and more matters will be examined during the show.
