2020 is an election year and the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment, making it a vital time to
consider the history of voting rights in the United States. Just as the United States has never been a true “government by the people, for the people,” the right to vote has always been incomplete, contested, and compromised by the racism, sexism, classism, and xenophobia of policymakers and the interests they act to protect. This workshop will help participants — and their students — see that yes, voting rights have expanded in the last 400 years, but they have also been taken away, requiring activists to rise up, again and again, to restore the achievements of prior generations.
