.......A Hot button issue on the table for discussion:

Proverbs31Woman said:
"Voting Rights Act of 1965 - While President Obama is in office, this needs to be made into a law. I think this will be a good referendum to help push forward as it's vitally important to black people as a whole."

ManicRaider said:
Thanks for mentioning this. I remember my local news talked about this and at the end the correspondent said "why not just make it a law?" and I had forgotten what it was about. I knew it involved something about black people being able to do something that was extended for a few years. That image of her saying that has been in my head for years until now. Thank you.

Politics From The Black Perspective

MEETING SYNOPSIS

Voting Rights Act of 1965
Background

The Voting Rights Act (VR Act) bans racial discrimination in voting practices by the federal government as well as by state and local governments.
Passed in 1965 after a century of deliberate and violent denial of the vote to African-Americans in the South and Latinos in the Southwest – as well as many years of entrenched electoral systems that shut out citizens with limited fluency in English – the VRA is often held up as the most effective civil rights law ever enacted. It is widely regarded as enabling the enfranchisement of millions of minority voters and diversifying the electorate and legislative bodies at all levels of American government.

Congress has reauthorized the VRA five times, most recently in 2006, when both the House and the Senate approved the measure overwhelmingly in a bipartisan manner. Congress conducted over 20 hearings, heard from over 50 expert witnesses, and collected over 17,000 pages of testimony documenting the continued need for and constitutionality of the statute.

The 2006 reauthorization renewed several key protections, Election Day monitors, and Justice Department pre-approval of voting changes. The protections are currently set to expire in 2031.

Group discussion ensued on the following highlights:

- Current controversies relating to Section 5 of the VR Act

- The possibile weakening or abolishment of the VR Act

- The vulnerability minorities are opened up to with its current renewal agreement

- Section 5 covers Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia with the exception of eight counties and three cities in Virginia – Should other states be included?

- Advantages to all minorities collectively working together to ensure Congress maintains the integrity of the Act

Group discussed and agreed to table this topic and work on the following action items:

- Identify a Political Action Committee (PAC) group

- Spread awareness of the impact of the VR Act to the Destee.com community and other communities at large

- Explore collaborative opportunities to strengthen our charge and push this referendum forward

- Develop a white paper to our respective State representatives and other parties of political influence

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
