Dale Ho supervises the ACLU’s voting rights litigation nationwide, with active cases in over a dozen states in every region of the country. He defends our most fundamental right by combating voter suppression and by opening opportunities for participation for the historically disenfranchised.
Prior to joining the ACLU, Mr. Ho, a graduate of Princeton and Yale Law School, was assistant counsel at the NAACP Legal Defense fund.
As the 2016 elections approach, come and hear about the state of voting rights, redistricting and the continuing effort to block voter registration.
