Source: Congress Tries to Fix the Voting Rights Act

The Director of the Political Participation Group at NAACP Legal Defense Fund Ryan Haygood joined the Melissa Harris Perry Show to discuss the serious threat to voting rights facing African Americans. LDF defended the Voting Rights Act before the U.S. Supreme Court, but last month they issued an outrageous ruling to take it out of commission.  LDF is urging Congress to step in and asking the public to notify us of any discriminatory voting changes in their communities by emailing vote@naacpldf.org .
