Episode 6: The Supreme Court vs Voting Rights



The U.S. Supreme Court dealt a major blow to voting rights in its recent 6-3 decision in Brnovich v. DNC. The Court's conservative majority upheld two Arizona voter suppression laws and gutted a key provision of the Voting Rights Act. Join Lindsay Langholz and Kat Calvin for a discussion about the impact of this decision and the Court's previous decision in Shelby County v. Holder. They discuss where the fight to protect voting rights goes from here and what listeners can do in their local communities.
