MAP initiative to be honored and featured at National Conference for Civil Rights

"At long last, after a decade and a half of advocacy by Asa Gordon and a majority of the Green Party to enforce "the right to vote" Mal-Apportionment Penalty (MAP) clause in Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution (Amend. XIV§2), a clause that mandates proportional allocation of elected representatives based on the popular vote split, or for a state to suffer a "Reduction of Representation" pursuant to title 2 section 6 of the United States Code (2USC§6) for any abridgment of citizen voting rights , the MAP initiative (voting rights "Roots") will be honored and featured in a National Conference for Civil Rights activists.

I am honored to serve as a keynote speaker, to be granted two workshops and invited as a singular conference presenter at the 6th National Civil Rights Conference to present the full scope of the historical and contemporary context for the modern  application of the MAP initiative for voting rights..." 

 I would like to take this opportunity for a personal shout out to those whose support of my efforts in regards to the MAP initiative over the last decade and a half are inestimable: The Late Lawrence Jamison, esquire, Gary Michael Coutin, esquire, Garrine P.

"...In the aftermath of America's Civil War it was accepted that the union had  been saved, but "The reinauguration of the national authority-reconstruction"  (A. Lincoln) and the establishment of full participatory democracy was still very  much in doubt. The lecture presents ignored historical facts, and reveals the  hidden Civil Rights legacy of how Black Civil War veterans reconstituted the  nation in alignment with the DECLARATION and established the foundation of  citizens' voting rights in the United States of America.

The lecture was adapted  for the 2013_GPUSANM to provide explicit historical progressive  reconstruction era constitutional context for  the "Democratize the Electoral College Civil Action" Gordon et.al. vs Clerk of HOR now pending  in Federal Court. The  lecture demonstrates how voter suppression tactics, "Winner-take-all",  and "Gerrymandered Districts" in national presidential elections violates the electoral mandate of the second section of the Fourteenth Amendment to the constitution  adopted during Reconstruction. The presentation  also exposes that the misguided National Popular Vote (NPV) initiative is grounded in a reactionary redemption era Supreme Court ruling that overturned Reconstruction to reestablish white supremacy, and furthermore explicitly violates the malapportionment clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Green Pages has published a full online article based on this lecture that details the contemporary context of the Federal Civil Action..."
