The NAACP held a public forum on civil rights enforcement by the U.S. Department of Justice. Topics included the possible congressional renewal of the Voting Rights Act, the District of Columbia voting rights act, the failure of the Justice Department to uphold the Voting Rights Act. Representatives of civil rights organizations described instances of civil rights violations that were not pursued by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. One witness said the Division has become politicized.
