Planned Parenthood Action Fund Honors the 51st Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act

NEW YORK, NY— Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund Action Fund, issued the below statement on the 51st anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, taking place on Saturday, August 6. In 2013, the Supreme court decision Shelby County v. Holder gutted the Voting Rights Act, which heavily affected the electoral process for marginalized communities and people of color. We are better off when more people have a voice in our political process — we should be passing laws that make it easier to vote, not harder.
