rights in over a century.
A century ago, the
target was the voting rights of Black voters and other voters of

accelerate the spread of racial segregation.
target is the voting rights of Black voters, Latino voters,

immigrants of all colors. These are also among the voting
demographics who are most likely to support workers rights,
equal opportunity, women's rights, LBGT rights, environmental

racially motivated ex-felon voting bans.
suppression also takes many forms, including attacks on early
and Sunday voting to make voting harder for working people,
