Voting Rights and the March on Washington

(Editor’s Note: Ari Berman is a friend of Blog for Iowa, and he passed along this note which may be of interest to readers).

Dear Friends,

I wanted to pass on a few timely new stories that I thought would be of interest:

The legal challenges to North Carolina’s sweeping new voting restrictions

The key factors that will decide the fate of voting rights in NC and nationally

http://www.thenation.com/blog/175345/north-carolina-republicans-push-harsh-new-voter-id-law

And a new story in the latest issue of The Nation about the importance of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the March on Washington on contemporary civil rights organizing. As I write in the new piece, “so many of the issues that gave rise to the March on Washington fifty years ago remain unfulfilled or under siege today.”

Thanks for reading
