Black Leaders React to Supreme Blow to Voting Rights Act
Attorney General Eric Holder
"Our country has changed for the better since 1965 but the destination we seek has not yet been reached. Indeed, a reading of today’s opinions demonstrates that every member of the Supreme Court agrees with this fact – as the Chief Justice wrote, 'voting discrimination still exists: no one doubts that.' This is why protecting the fundamental right to vote – for all Americans – will remain one of the Justice Department’s highest priorities."
