Fighting for Voting Rights in the South
The battle over voting rights continues across the country with many states grappling with redistricting that disenfranchises voters of color.

Gerrymandering is also an issue in North Carolina where the state’s supreme court ruled that partisan Republican efforts to redraw congressional and state legislative maps were unconstitutional. Our guest is Dr. Aimy Steele, founder and executive director of the New North Carolina Project, a non-partisan group that is working to make sure communities of color are not left out of the political process and have their votes count.
