NAACP President and CEO, Derrick Johnson, Releases Statement on Senate's Failure to Pass Voting Rights Legislation

Statement from the President - NAACP

Today's shameful outcome revealed who stands for, and who stands against democracy. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 took three attempts to pass into law, so we will continue to fight. Anything short of protecting the right to vote is a death sentence for democracy. The fight is far from over.
