Just wanted to share more news of the alarming movement to disenfranchise large voting blocs through restrictive elections legislation across the nation. Check out Judith Browne Dianis, Co-Director of the Advancement Project (one of our key grant partners), speaking on MSNBC:
From Advancement Project: Our outreach is continuing to build Momentum, sparking more media coverage of the largest legislative effort to scale back voting rights in a century. In a September 15, 2011 Rolling Stone article, Advancement Project Co-Director Judith Browne Dianis examines these efforts as a coordinated strategy to ‘. . . undermine democracy by cutting off the voices of the people.’ Advancement Project remains steadfast in its determination to safeguard voters from these anti-democratic barriers to impede access to the ballot.
Note: Both Advancement Project and the Kapor Foundation approach voter access and elections protection as nonpartisan issues.
