Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. This year's focus of Constitution Day will be on the right to vote in America. Rebecca Glenberg, senior staff attorney of ACLU of Illinois, will discuss voting rights issues including gerrymandering, voter suppression, barriers to voting, and actions to make voting easier. Classes are encouraged to attend. 

Rebecca Glenberg is a senior staff attorney at the ACLU of Illinois, where she works on a number of civil liberties issues including free speech, religious liberty, voting rights, criminal justice, and immigrants’ rights. Prior to joining the ACLU of Illinois in 2015, she was the Legal Director of the ACLU of Virginia for sixteen years. She received her B.A. from the University of Chicago and her J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School.
