Tuesday, May 12, 2020, 4:30 PM - 5:15 PM
Underrepresented students encounter unique voting barriers that need to be addressed in general voter engagement campaigns to effectively interrogate sociopolitical inequities. When higher education institutions do not espouse an intersectional perspective towards realizing voter parity, educators and policymakers may perpetuate disparate voter outcomes and/or exhibit deficit assumptions about underrepresented populations. In an effort to realize equity, diversity, and inclusion for voter parity, this presentation shares best student political learning and engagement strategies and interventions in support of underrepresented student populations.
