Celebrating 75 Years of LDF
The NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF) strongly supports the Voting Rights Advancement Act (the Advancement Act), introduced today in the Senate and the House. The bill represents a welcome effort by Members of Congress to restore critical voting rights protections in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision that gutted a key provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act exactly two years ago in Shelby County, Alabama v. Holder.
