Minnesota’s voter restriction amendment would make it difficult for hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans to vote – students, seniors, people living in poverty, people of color, and anyone without easy access to a current ID.

  • How does the voter restriction amendment fit in to the bigger picture of racialized voter suppression as a strategy for right-wing, corporate control?

  • For those of us who create change primarily outside electoral politics, what is the significance of voter restriction for our many social justice struggles?

  • With the same-sex marriage amendment also on the ballot, what strategic choices help or hurt our chances for building long-term power for our communities?

  • And: How do we mobilize to defeat the amendments and build for the long haul?
