The Robert E. Strippel Memorial Fund for Continuing Dialogue on Justice and Human Rights

The Robert E. Strippel Memorial Fund for Continuing Dialogue on Justice and Human Rights is an annual event devoted to the discussion and debate of local, regional, national, and global human rights issues and concerns.

Protect the Vote: Voter Suppression and Rights in 2020

African Americans, women, the disability community and other marginalized groups have hard-won struggles for basic voting rights, but these challenges are not a thing of the past. In fact, the last few years have seen a rash of voter suppression laws/tactics such as voter roll purges and unnecessarily complex ID requirements.

Camille Wimbish will give us an overview of these current issues, as well as some insight into important statewide election protection efforts and reforms.

Register to vote for the 2020 Ohio primaries and general election.
