On Tuesday, January 11, join us for the next conversation in our racial justice series entitled, "Anti-Protest Policies and Martin Luther King Jr.'s History of Protest" with Melba Pearson, civil rights attorney.
Melba Pearson will discuss anti-protest laws, such as HB1, that were enacted in Florida last year. She will put this topic into context with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s work and the history of the protests he helped lead.
Melba Pearson is a civil rights attorney who served as Deputy Director for the ACLU Florida and was instrumental in the passage of Voting Rights Amendment 4 in 2018 - the historic amendment which restored voting rights to as many as 1.4 million Floridians and ended permanent disenfranchisement of people with past felony convictions.
Let us know if you can make it. RSVP today!
