LANSING, Mich. — Lansing Community College will hold a virtual information session The Vote and Your Voice, 3-4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15.

The Vote and Your Voice will detail the importance of voting, information on how to vote in the upcoming election, and the history of voting rights particularly for African Americans and women.

Special guests include Rep. Sarah Anthony, Lansing City Clerk Chris Swope, and LCC political science professor Randy Watkins. The 90-minute event emceed by LCC’s Layne Ingram will include video, LCC student poetry, the opportunity to get your questions about voting answered, and critical information on how to vote and key dates and deadlines.

“Fall 2020, coming up on a big election, this is a great time for LCC staff, students, and the greater LCC community to come together to engage with each other and discuss the importance of the vote,” said Annescia Dillard Black History Awareness Committee co-chair. “Historically African Americans have had to continuously fight for the right to vote. Inspired by that persistence we created this event to inform and hopefully inspire all who wish to participate.”

The Vote and Your Voice is sponsored by the Black History Awareness Committee and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Visit https://www.lcc.edu/calendar/index.php?eID=2774 [lcc.edu] to learn more.
