The American Constitution Society, Campaign Legal Center, and Georgetown University Law Center launched the Voting Rights Institute to respond to this crisis in our democracy, and that mission and our work remain unchanged after the 2016 election. Our efforts to train lawyers, experts, and law students, and to educate the public about voting rights are more important than ever, especially as we work to understand the impact of discriminatory voting laws on the recent election.
Unfortunately, we face a Supreme Court that is likely to remain skeptical of attacks on minority voting rights. But we will continue to defend against these attacks, and we will continue to build a clear and unassailable record of the discriminatory intent and impact of laws that restrict access to the ballot. Finally, we will continue to fight for a democratic government that reflects the voices of all of its people.
