Freedom to Vote: Is Voter Suppression an Issue in the U.S.?
Social Justice Discussion Group
Monday, January 10
Open to 8th-12th graders
In November of 2020, the United States General Election had the highest voter turnout in the country’s history. Six months later, over 30 laws had been passed that some say make it harder for Americans, especially minorities, to cast a ballot. Join us to discuss the various forms of voter suppression at play, federal actions that allows them to continue and ways that you can be an “upstander” to ensure that all Americans have an equal right to vote. This peer-led group offers a space for honest and safe conversations while developing opinions on current issues and learning Judaism’s position on difficult topics. SJDG takes place via Zoom, so you can participate from anywhere! Even if you only have a few minutes to spare, we invite you to log on and listen or share.
