Reverend William J. Barber of Goldsboro, President of the North Carolina $NAACP$ and architect of the Moral Monday movement testified at a Congressional luncheon briefing on what he calls the threat of voter suppression Thursday.
The event featured national civil rights leaders, scholars, and top voting experts and was moderated by renowned news journalist Roland S. Martin of NewsOne. Barber, was a special guest speaker on the topic: “How Voter Suppression Efforts Are Threatening Our Democracy”
The briefing was sponsored by the Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC), led by noted civil rights attorney Barbara R. Arnwine, former Executive Director of the Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law, and also sponsored by the National Election Defense Coalition (NEDC).
Barber feels the evisceration of provisions of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court has allowed states to brazenly restrict voting rights.
