Robert Dion helps prepare report on voting rights in Indiana
Posted: Wednesday, September 12, 2018
Robert Dion, department chair for Law, Politics, and Society at the University of Evansville, recently participated in the preparation of a report on the status of voting rights in the state of Indiana. That report will be formally presented on Wednesday, September 12, at a meeting of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C.
The work is the result of a series of fact-finding hearings held across the state by members of the Indiana State Advisory Committee (SAC) to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Professor Dion, who is the longtime chairperson of the local civil rights agency, the Evansville-Vanderburgh County Human Relations Commission, received a federal appointment to the Indiana State Advisory Committee in 2014.
