On Aug. 23, 2022, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) hosted the event, “Barriers to the Ballot Box: A Conversation with Author Gilda Daniels,” about Daniel’s book “Uncounted: The Crisis of Voter Suppression in America.”   

During the event, Daniels discussed the tactics being deployed in the 21st century to prevent Americans from exercising their freedom to vote and how we can fight for comprehensive solutions that would protect the right of voters to participate in our democracy. 

The right to vote is a fundamental American freedom. Our country’s democracy works best when voters can vote in safe, accessible elections.
