TSU professor, SGA president invited by Houston Mayor to speak at voting rights event

By: Texas Southern University

Dr. Michael Adams, professor of Political Science and Public Administration, and Student Government Association president Dexter Maryland (pictured below) will moderate the Youth & Young Adults: The Future of Democracy session during the upcoming National Nonpartisan Conversation on Voter Rights. The summit will be held September 19-21 in Houston, with the theme “Strengthening and providing municipalities with tools to empower, engage, and inform voter access.”

Adams and Maryland were invited by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner’s office to participate. This is the 2nd annual Conversation event, with the inaugural event held last year in Denver, CO. It is organized by a group of bipartisan mayors who believe it is critical to continue the conversation with stakeholders (including local elected officials, business leaders, and community activists) on strategies to protect, defend, and promote voter rights education.
