Please join us for a rare opportunity to hear from a few of the top national leaders on election integrity and civil rights. We invite you to gather with the Election Verification Network (EVN) Coordinating Committee for a private panel presentation and discussion, outlining current issues in U.S. election integrity. No matter what your chosen interest areas may be, these issues impact every funder’s success. Coordinating Committee members on hand for the conversation will include:

§ Melanie Campbell, CEO and Executive Director of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation

§ Susannah Goodman, Director of Election Reform Programs at Common Cause

§ Eddie Hailes, Senior Attorney with the Advancement Project

§ Joseph Lorenzo Hall, Postdoctoral Researcher, UC Berkeley/Princeton/ACCURATE

§ Pam Smith, President of the Verified Voting Foundation

You are also invited to stay for the EVN Conference’s Welcome Reception from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., which will be open to all EVN attendees.

The Election Verification Network seeks to make sure every person’s vote in all U.S. elections is recorded correctly and counted accurately for fair results the public can verify. Sponsored by Quixote Foundation since 2004, the EVN has grown to include some 110 leaders including representatives from nonprofit organizations, election officials and individuals working in election integrity, civic engagement and civil rights.

Please RSVP to and feel free to forward this to other funders and individual donors who might be interested.
