Equal Justice America to award a two-year $130,000 Voting Rights Fellowship to a Harvard Law Graduate at the Brennan Center for Justice

In News by david.landis

Equal Justice America will award a two-year $130,000 Voting Rights Fellowship at the Brennan Center for Justice for a graduating Harvard law student or recent Harvard law graduate.  The Fellowship will begin in Fall 2022.

Voting rights are under attack nationwide.  More than 400 bills with provisions that restrict voting access have been introduced in 49 states in the 2021 legislative sessions.
 
In many cases, these laws are aimed directly at suppressing the votes of people that Equal Justice America fights for every day—low-income communities of color, the elderly and people with disabilities.
 
Please support our effort to protect the right of every American to vote.  Please consider making a gift today.
