The USM chapter of the Student Association of Social Workers hosted  the Your Voice, Your Vote forum on Oct. 25 which included a screening of  a film about the struggle of African Americans to attain voting rights during the Civil Rights Movement followed by a forum, including panelists from the MS ACLU, Mississippi Rising Coalition, the National Association of Social  Workers and the USM Department of Social Work.

This event’s goal was to encourage, educate and spark conversation about the voting process in Mississippi and the link between voting, public policy and the quality of life and civil rights of Mississippians.
