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

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.
