The Igniting Change Radio Show on Tuesday, November 1st, 2022, entitled “The Role of Election Protection in Confronting Poll Disruptors and Voter Challengers during the 2022 Midterm Elections” will feature Radio Show Co-Hosts and Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) Co-Leaders Attorneys Barbara Arnwine and Daryl Jones will be joined by guests to discuss Attorneys Lynn Whitfield and Christina Das to talk about the effort to organize lawyers to assist voters at the polls who are confronted by poll disruptors or challengers.
Our show will revisit the highlights of the TJC’S and National Bar Association’s (NBA) Election Protection panel held on Friday, October 28th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This panel, shared by National Bar Association-Transformative Justice Coalition Director of Election Protection and Executive Director of the Good Trouble Voting Rights Institute Attorney Lynn Whitfield, included as panelists TJC President and Founder Attorney Barbara Arnwine; Acting Secretary of the State of Pennsylvania Atty. Leigh M. Chapman; Product Manager for Civil Litigation in LexisNexis Practical Guidance and Analytical Atty. Randi-Lynn SmallHeer; and, Attorney in the Prepared to Vote and Voting Rights Defender Project for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund Atty. Christina Das. For the purposes of our show, we are only going to concentrate on the discussion that was held about the role of lawyers protecting voters at the polls.
In 2022, one of the disconcerting realities for some voters at African-American polling sites will be the presence of poll disruptors and voter challengers. The role of the poll disruptors is to intimidate voters and to cause enough confusion at polling sites to significantly delay the voting process. TJC and the NBA are working fiercely to organize lawyers to assist voters in ensuring that they are able to vote without being subjected to intimidation or unnecessary long lines.In addition, our programs also are designed to defend voters who are subjected to racist or partisan challenges in order to prevent their votes from being cast or counted.Our show will give insights into strategies voters can undertake to protect their right to vote and the role that African-American lawyers can play in in defending the precious, almost sacred, right to vote.
