"You have the power," extolled Sherrilyn Ifill, NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund president. "You have to make this happen." Ifill noted that a voting rights bill has passed four times before with bipartisan support and been signed by four Republican presidents. "You can do this. But you have to keep your mind focused on it. You can't let Duck Dynasty and Donald Sterling and everybody else distract you from what we are trying to accomplish because the right to vote is preservative of all rights. All the rest of it is affected by the right to vote."
