Join the ACLU of PA at the 2018 Philadelphia Chapter's annual meeting, featuring Dale Ho, director of the Voting Rights Project at the ACLU. Dale supervises the ACLU’s voting rights litigation and advocacy work nationwide.

In March of 2018, Dale argued in federal court in Fish v. Kobach, a trial over a law that disenfranchised tens of thousands of voters in Kansas. During the two week trial, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach attempted to defend not just his signature legislation, which requires people to show documentary proof of citizenship such as a birth certificate or passport when registering to vote, but to support his claim of rampant voter fraud. Kobach's voter repression efforts failed spectacularly on both scores. Hear Dale's report back here.

In addition to hearing from Dale, Executive Director Reggie Shuford will speak about the ACLU of PA's work to defend civil liberties, including our work toward Criminal Justice Reform.
