We all know voting is a right, not a privilege, and COVID-19 presents new obstacles to casting a ballot. That’s why we’re hosting “Ballots & Ballads,” a 100% virtual fundraiser, on Tuesday, October 27 to support our “Vote Like Your Rights Depend On It” campaign, which seeks to empower and educate voters throughout the state on ways to vote safely during the pandemic.
Tuesday, October 27, 2020
7 p.m. CT/8 p.m. ET
Location: Cyberspace (Event link will be provided to sponsors and ticketholders closer to the event date)
Please join us for a lively evening of music, entertainment, and updates on ACLU-TN’s voting rights work, featuring Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter Jason Isbell; poet, writer and blues musician Adia Victoria; comedian and actor John Early, and more.
About Vote Like Your Rights Depend On It: No one should have to choose between their health and their vote, and that’s why we’ve just launched a bold, statewide campaign to encourage Tennesseans to vote safely this fall. Our goal is to spread educational resources and information to Tennesseans so that every voter feels both educated and empowered at the polls – whether voting safely in person or via absentee ballot. We’ll focus our efforts on communities of color throughout the state – which have been disproportionately impacted by both voter suppression and the COVID-19 pandemic – and we’ll emphasize the advantages of voting early and voting by mail, an option available to more Tennesseans than ever before due to our recent lawsuit in the Tennessee Supreme Court.
