Please see the message from the NLG and Jobs Now below about the visit of a representative of the Heritage Foundation, a Conservative propaganda organization.  The Heritage Foundation spreads lies about "illegal voters" to justify barriers to voting.    The Heritage foundation fellow, Hans von Spakovsky, will be at the UMKC law school student lounge, Wednesday, October 3rd at noon.

Urgent Message from UMKC's NLG President:

We want to make you aware of an event happening at UMKC Law this Wednesday that presents a great opportunity for challenging an intense right-wing propaganda machine. The UMKC chapter of the Federalist Society has invited Hans von Spakovsky, a fellow of the Heritage Foundation and a Bush-era appointee to the FEC with a lengthy history of advancing a voter suppression agenda, to speak in the law school student lounge, Wednesday, October 3rd at noon.

Federalist Society touts this as a debate, but has yet to identify the speaker for the opposition. We are planning to pack the room and force von Spakovsky to answer some tough questions about the propagation of these laws, his years-long involvement in their development and implementation, and the real purposes behind them. We would love to have our area attorneys as reinforcements, to help hold Mr. von Spakovsky's feet to the fire. I have attached to this message a couple of articles that give some background on von Spakovsy and his past efforts.

It is urgent that we stand together to make our position known: that we will not sit idly by as the Right continues to organzise to dismantle fundamental rights and quash our voice. It's time to put our foot down.
