President Joe Biden Calls for New Voting Protections on 58th Anniversary of ‘Bloody Sunday’ March in Selma, Alabama

On the 58th anniversary of the "Bloody Sunday" march in Selma, Alabama, President Joe Biden called for new voting protections, noting that the right to vote is still under attack. He pointed to the Supreme Court's gutting of the Voting Rights Act over the years as a major factor in the erosion of voting rights and called for the passage of the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to restore the protections of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Biden also highlighted the need for a new voting rights act to protect against discrimination, emphasizing that the right to vote is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have in a democratic society.
