REV. JESSE JACKSON & THOMAS A. SAENZ - Civil Rights Leaders Speak out on Supreme Court Decisions on Voting Rights and Affirmative Action - Announce Strategies to Defend Civil Rights‏
 
CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS SPEAK OUT ON SUPREME COURT DECISIONS ON VOTING RIGHTS AND AFFIRMATIVE ACTION – ANNOUNCE STRATEGIES TO DEFEND CIVIL RIGHTS
 
LOS ANGELES – Rev. Jackson stated:  “This week’s Supreme Court decisions on affirmative action and the Voting Rights Act are ideologically inspired rulings designed to unravel the historic accomplishments of the civil rights movement. We are calling upon the President to convene Congressional leaders immediately to begin drafting the appropriate legislation to sustain the Voting Rights Act.  
 
The Court’s decision on affirmative action is out of touch with reality.  Conservatives on the court want to distort the Constitution once more, and rule that affirmative action based on race is unconstitutional, even when it is undertaken to provide opportunity to those who were locked out.”
