About this Event

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson will deliver University of Detroit Mercy School of Law's Second Annual Dewitt C. Holbrook Lecture on Social Justice.

Benson will explore the connection between the right to vote and the struggle for social justice. From her perspective as Michigan’s chief election officer and a former dean of Wayne State University Law School, she will discuss how efforts to win civil rights have been intertwined with access to the ballot throughout American history and how those themes continue to reverberate today.

A reception will immediately follow at Detroit Mercy Law's atrium.
