Voting Rights Celebration

A voting booth

We believe that every voter should have a meaningful voice in free and equal elections. On November 6, join us to celebrate the right to vote at a cocktail party hosted by Law Center board member Howard Langer and Barbara Jaffe. We will look back on our history of work making sure all citizens have access to the ballot box.

This year, the Public Interest Law Center is looking back on 50 years of fighting for justice, and preparing for 50 more. To celebrate this milestone, we are hosting a series of events throughout the year highlighting our history, our work today, and our plans for the future.

We focus on “securing access to fundamental resources and services.” These resources and services are the foundations people need to build their lives: a voice at the ballot box, safe housing, healthy neighborhoods, quality education, and freedom from discrimination.
