What’s Voting Got To Do With It?
The 2020 Census deadline has passed and the national election is over, but the journey for justice is far from done. Our most celebrated civil rights organizations, which have long championed the voting protections and rights of Black, Asian, and Latino Americans, are fully engaged in the fray. They are countering, in both state and federal courts, the outgoing administration’s relentless campaign to minimize access, by non-white people, to complete census data and representation in the apportionment and redistricting process. The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund’s Leah Aden walks us through the impact of exclusion at all levels of civic life. This is a call to action for our collective future and the future of democracy.
