As voting rights concerns remain at the forefront of American elections, Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and the ACLU of Maryland will come together this fall for the annual Constitution Day symposium to tackle topics that have affected democracy for decades.

This year’s event, "One Person, One Vote: The Challenge of American Democracy, Past and Present,” will include speaker Bob Moses, a Civil Rights activist and former leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) who directed the Mississippi Voter Registration Project from 1961 to 1964.

Alongside Moses, DeAnna Hoskins, President of JustLeadershipUSA, and Eric Gottesman, photographer and co-founder of For Freedoms Project, will also be part of this year’s Constitution Day panel.

The event is free and open to the public, and commemorates the September 17 holiday.
