Hayward Participates in Election Year Summit

Professor Allison Hayward was a participant in a panel discussion at the 2008 Election Year Summit sponsored by the American Bar Association's Section of Equal Rights & Responsibilities and the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy. Held at the Equality Center at the Human Rights Campaign in Washington, DC, on April 18, the summit's goal was to bring together leaders of the ABA, the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, and state and local bar associations for a day-long conference on the pressing issues of civil rights, civil liberties and social justice being debated during the 2008 election season.

Hayward joined representatives of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the Asian American Justice Center, the Advancement Project, and the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law in a panel discussion entitled "Barriers to the Right to Vote."
