Joanna Cuevas Ingram '12 Co-authors Report on Voter Discrimination in California
Joanna Cuevas Ingram '12, an Equal Justice Works Fellow and Attorney at the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights in San Francisco, has co-authored a new report on "Voting Rights Barriers and Discrimination in Twenty-First Century California: 2000-2013." Written with Georgetown Legal Fellow Rachel Evans, the article is an in-depth study of voting discrimination in California over the past 13 years and chronicles a trend in voting rights violations and disenfranchisement throughout the state.
"The trends that emerged from our research demonstrate that significant discrimination and voting rights barriers continue to plague California elections. The findings make clear the need for consistent enforcement of existing legal protections, as well as stronger voting rights protections under state and federal law," said Cuevas Ingram.
