Description

The right to vote is a keystone of democracy, but many Americans still fight for this fundamental freedom despite the passage 41 years ago of the Voting Rights Act, which aimed to ensure equal access to the ballot box. With vital parts of the VRA up for renewal, even more citizens could find themselves stripped of their voting rights.
This program illustrates the devastating impact of disenfranchisement on people's daily lives, and introduces you to individuals who are tearing down barriers to full political participation.
