The Cup Half Full

If the Supreme Court upholds Section 5, which the Advancement Project's Dianis predicts it will, she believes states will be deterred from trying to pass laws or implement practices that harm the voting rights of people of color. "This last election cycle showed that we need more voter protections, not less," Dianis said. The Supreme Court has upheld Section 5 four times.
