Event Brochure

We often trace political participation to a place of residence. Historically, many peoples have had restricted opportunities to express their political views by voting in the places they live. This panel explores whether voting in place or exercising a freedom to move elsewhere is best for securing key political interests.


Join a virtual discussion on this important topic, featuring:

· Michael Evans, Senior Lecturer, Department of Political Science, Georgia State University

· Andra Gillespie, Associate Professor (Political Science) and Graduate Faculty of Emory Sociology, Director of The James Weldon Johnson Institute, Emory University
