The Scholars Strategy Network (SSN) will host State Voting Summits in Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Working with local coalition partners, SSN campus-based chapters in those states will leverage SSN’s structure as a voluntary, federated organization of university researchers to engage new institutions in the Students Learn Students Vote Coalition (SLSV) and catalyze commitments to encourage voting in 2019, 2020, and beyond.
These summits will seek to learn from the history of civic engagement at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and aim to engage campuses not yet affiliated with the SLSV. SSN chapters in these states will leverage long-standing relationships with leaders on both sides of the aisle to increase support for removing barriers to student democratic engagement.
