August 8, 2017

 (Baltimore, MD)- "Too many in this country are trying to make it too hard and more difficult for people who are fellow citizens to exercise their right to be heard at the ballot box." Said Former US Atty Generak Eric Holder at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) held their 108th Annual National Conventio ioJuly 22 - 26 2017.
The oldest Civil Rights organization, with it's theme "Steadfast and Immovable," brought
forth over 6,000 conference registrants on their mission to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons to eliminate race-based discrimination.
Monday July 24th at the Baltimore Convention Center, The Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr. helped to keep this mission going by addressing delegates with a message that focused on voting rights.
Holder, a leading progressive voice who has spent decades of a remarkable career at the forefront of the nation's most critical issues, was keynote speaker of the NAACP Clarence Mitchell
IVIernorial Luncheon.

He was our Nation's first African-American Attorney General, working for our First-African merican United States President Barack Obama; focusing on the fact that the U.S. continues to make it difficult for voters to cast their ballots.
"There is a movement in America that attempts to make it more difficult to suppress the vote, the aided and abetted by a wrongly decided, factually inaccurate and disconnected Supreme Court decision," said Holder.The Attorney General explained that every person attempting to vote must show they are who they claim to be. "The problem is that it has been recently, some states have become overly prescriptive and unfairly restrictive in illuminating what is sufficient
proof."
Holder reminded everyone that in recent past and in certain states, there are certain Legislatures and certain Governors that this more restrictive where prescribed approach has been manding, and he questions, "Why?"
He says the usual justification stated is to insure integrity of the electoral system by preventing voter fraud.
"Given the nature of the fraud that has been eliminated, the new restriction I must assume, must be designed to prevent any person from false identification voting," said Holder.
He says that although there is no statistical proof that there is cause for the nation to be concerned, "the Vote Fraud Management has said so often - almost robotically - that some people have unthinkingly become to believe that the issue is real."
Holder questioned President Donald Trump's voting commission's investigating fraud with the commission requesting that state election officials turn over data and personal information on the nation's 200 million voters; many states refuse to comply.
President Trump defends the commission's mission causing Holder to assure everyone that the right to vote in the U.S. is "under siege" and must be protected.Said Holder, "At a time when we should be expanding opportunities to cast a ballot, there is a movement in America that attempts to make it more difficult, to suppress the vote."He said that the things that are going on in America today is unacceptable and un-American. "We must not take the right to vote for granted....we owe a debt to those who sacrificed so much for us to vote."Holder ended by requesting delegates to "think about those three civil rights workers who were killed trying to make sure that all American's will have access to the ballot box...ln all of our actions we must honor that sacrifice."The National NAACP has established a new appreciation award in honor of an attorney whoas exemplified great character and extraordinary work in the U.S., calling it the Nathaniel R.
