BATAVIA – Prompted by headlines about threats to democracy, a public forum with voting rights attorney Ami Gandhi will be presented by the League of Women Voters of Central Kane County at 7 p.m. Dec. 7 in Batavia.
"From Russian hackers to concerns about voter fraud, our communities have been rocked by recent events that threaten to undermine our democracy," stated a news release.
The program is designed to help people learn how to sort the myths from the real threats and work toward solutions. Gandhi is director of voting rights and civic empowerment at the Chicago Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization.
Gandhi will discuss the voting rights landscape in Illinois, current litigation and policy efforts to expand and protect voter access, and what community members can do to strengthen democracy.
The program will be held at the Batavia Public Library located at 10 S. Batavia Ave. For more information, visit the League's Facebook page at shawurl.com/36oq.
