Join our Executive Director Colleen Connell for a Google Hangout tomorrow to discuss the Voting Rights Act!
 
Colleen K. Connell, Executive Director of ACLU Illinois, joins us for part two of our Voting Rights Hangout Series to discuss SCOTUS Decision in Shelby County v. Holder, its implications, and what we as citizens can do in the wake of this decision.

In January of 2001, Colleen Connell became the first female attorney to lead the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, an organization Ms. Connell joined in 1984.

Prior to becoming the Executive Director, Ms. Connell served as the ACLU’s Associate Legal Director and Director of the Reproductive Rights Project. In that capacity, she directed the organization’s litigation efforts involving constitutional rights of privacy and protecting the rights of Illinois citizens to make decisions concerning reproductive matters and child-bearing, without undue governmental restriction.

A native of North Dakota, she was graduated from North Dakota State University and the University of Iowa School of Law.
