    Supreme Court to Hear Case to End Voting Rights Act

    in Politics Progressive

    Supreme Court Hears Voting Rights Act Challenge Brought By Shelby County, Alabama  
    Despite our progress, discrimination continues to limit opportunities for African Americans and other people of color. The Voting Rights Act remains an essential tool in defending the voting rights of African-American voters and other voters of color who live in places with the worst and most persistent history of discrimination in voting.
     
    “In one of the most closely watched tests of the reach of the Voting Rights Act this year, Texas has just submitted its proposed redistricting changes to a federal court — not the U.S. Justice Department — for approval. Some Republican governors and attorneys general have advocated bypassing the Obama administration, arguing that they will get a less politicized answer from the courts, even though a Justice Department spokeswoman says the Attorney General has objected to only about “1 percent” of the proposals since the law was enacted.”

    March  is National Women’s History Month
    http://womenshistorymonth.gov/index.html
    Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week."
     In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month."  Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month.  Since 1995, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.”
