The Purpose of this Website

The website aims to educate all interested parties about voting rights laws and issues that affect racial and ethnic minority communities.  The website will provide information for persons and organizations who wish to advocate for minority voting rights.  Our website is a work in progress but in time there will be links explaining all crucial elements of the Voting Rights Act, with particular emphasis on Section 5 of the Act.  If you reside in an area that is covered by Section 5 it is crucial that you understand the special rights that apply to your community - especially now as the 2011 redistricting process is getting underway.

Thank you for visiting our site - we hope you find this information useful.  Stay tuned as we continue to update the site in the coming year.
