NAACP President Derrick Johnson on Signing of Texas Voter Suppression Bill

A Black Vote was suppressed

Press Contact:
Jonah Bryson

"Black votes were suppressed today. Texas Governor Greg Abbott has intentionally signed away democracy for so many. We are disgusted. This voter suppression bill is undemocratic, unamerican and even violates core conservative principles. While Greg Abbott and many other Governors have confirmed over and over how far they are willing to go to attack Black voters, we will continue to fight twice as hard to defend the right to vote."
