Dear EmailNation Subscriber,

Today's opinion by the Roberts Court gutting the Voting Rights Act was the most radical since Citizens United v. FEC and the worst voting rights decision in a century. What will that mean in practice? Ari Berman explains.

All best,
Peter Rothberg, The Nation

Congress Must Guarantee the Right to Vote

Today, the Supreme Court struck down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act, effectively gutting one of the most important pieces of civil rights legislation in the twentieth century. The ruling will make it easier for states to pass strict voter id laws, limits on registration and early voting and redistricting plans that disproportionately disenfranchise people of color. Contact your representative and demand Congress act now to pass a constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to vote.
