FIGHT FOR VOTING RIGHTS: Rally at Supreme Court tomorrow

Tomorrow the U.S. Supreme Court will hear Shelby County v. Holder, a challenge to Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, which requires all or parts of 16 “covered” states with long histories and contemporary records of voting discrimination to seek approval from the federal government for voting changes. The court is questioning whether Section 5 remains a necessary remedy for ongoing discrimination.
