Safeguarding the Sacred Right to Vote

12:00 PM

This week's guests: ROB JOHNSON, No Justice No Peace, 20/20 Vision Project, and Urban Impact Show; and AL WOMBLE, No Justice No Peace and 20/20 Vision Project

Our nation has a long list of laws and dirty tricks designed to suppress the vote of communities of color and other marginalized Americans. And although the tactics may have changed, we know the efforts to make it more difficult for some to vote continue.

Join us for What’s Happening this Monday, August 2, at noon as we continue our conversation from last week on the sacred right to vote and changes to Iowa law that hinder access for some Iowans. Connie Ryan, executive director, will talk with Rob Johnson and Al Womble about the history and current-day efforts infringing on the sacred right to vote and the efforts to ensure every Iowan who is eligible to vote can and does vote this year and in the years to come.

Join us on Facebook. Or, watch on our YouTube channel.

What’s Happening. is an online, weekly forum tackling hot topics and current events impacting everyday Iowans. Join Connie Ryan, Executive Director of Interfaith Alliance of Iowa, each Monday (except during the legislative session) at noon on Facebook as she talks with a guest speaker or thought leader. During the conversation, viewers can post questions for Connie to ask the day’s guest.
