ELB Podcast, Episode 5. Nina Perales: Latino Voting Rights Struggles in Texas and Beyond

[bumping to the top]

What is the state of Latino voting rights in the state of Texas and beyond? What’s happening with the never-ending redistricting litigation in San Antonio, raising questions about whether Texas discriminated against Latino voters and others? Has the demise of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act thanks to the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in Shelby County v. Holder hurt minority voters?

On Episode 5 of the ELB Podcast, we talk to Nina Perales, vice president of litigation for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, and one of the country’s leading voting rights lawyers.
