Here’s What You Need to Know About the New Fight for Voting Rights

Think everyone gets a fair chance at voting? Think again.

Here’s what’s really going on. With the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision to gut the 1965 Voting Rights Act and new restrictive voting laws in states like North Carolina, it’s getting harder for marginalized people to vote.

Supporters of these laws say that they prevent voter fraud – but the real impact tells a different story.

Here’s Rachel Lear’s short film The New Fight for Voting Rights, part of the SundanceNow Take 5: Justice in America series. This shows what everyone needs to know about voter suppression and the fight for voting rights in North Carolina and all around the country.

What is this doing to our democracy?
