Title Middlesex Community College To Host Law Day 2014
Location Federal Building Assembly Room, 50 Kearney Square, Lowell
Start Time 5/1/2014 12:00 PM
End Time 5/1/2014 1:00 PM
Middlesex Community College and the Center for Student Leadership & Engagement will observe Law Day 2014 with a special program, titled “American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters,” at noon Thursday, May 1, in MCC’s Federal Building Assembly Room, 50 Kearney Square, on the Lowell campus.

Camron Iannalfo, a senior at UMass Lowell (majoring in political science and minoring in history and legal studies), will speak at the event. Iannalfo currently serves in the U.S. Navy Seabees as an equipment operator and ran in the 2012 election for the New Hampshire House of Representatives. During the presentation, Iannalfo will discuss his service in the Navy, his work with the N.H. Democratic Party, and his experiences running for state office in 2008 and 2012.

Striving to establish and protect every citizen’s right to vote has been a central theme of American legal and civic history. Much of the struggle on voting rights began decades ago, but the work is far from complete. As we approach the 50th anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, this special presentation calls on every American to reflect on the importance of a citizen’s right to vote and the challenges we still face in ensuring all Americans have the opportunity to participate in our democracy.
