Voting is a fundamental right that many of us take for granted, but it hasn't always been that way. Come join the discussion on how the New York State voting process as we know it came to be through women's activism and how it continues to play a role in shaping voter empowerment. Learn and brainstorm ways for you to take advantage of the rights you have and improve the system for those who don't! Facilitated by Colin Hughs, NYPIRG and Professor Robin Ford.
