Amel Ahmed Writes on H.R.1 & The Struggle Over Voting Rights

Amel Ahmed writes in an op-ed that to secure an affirmative right to vote in the U.S. it is not enough just to fight discrimination. The government needs to take steps to make voting easier. She writes, "A truly progressive agenda would treat voting rights like economic rights, which also are not guaranteed in the Constitution, but have been earned through decades of struggle." (Washington Monthly, 2/25/2021)
