Race in America's Wave of Voter Suppression
As new voting laws across the United States are being legislated, we are starting to see the impact it will make regarding voting suppression that will impact Latino communities throughout the nation. Ten states have already passed restrictive voting laws and another 17 states are in the process of being passed into law. Not only will this impact Latinos, but it will also affect other minority groups that have already been affected by previous voting laws that have caused a suppression in voting turnout. It is our duty to make sure that all Latinos and other minority groups across this country make sure that every person's voice is heard by protecting our voting rights that have been threatened by these recent voting laws.
