Representatives Xavier Becerra (D-CA) and John Lewis (D-GA) joined legal advocates to examine the impact of voting and the state of Black America ahead of the 2014 midterm elections. They also talked about the police shooting in Ferguson, Missouri and the recent series of shooting of African American men by police officer.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spoke at the beginning of the event. She criticized House Republicans for praising and honoring Martin Luther and Coretta Ccott King yet refusing to pass a Voting Rights Act to rectify the Supreme Court’s decision in Shelby County v. Holder.

During the event Leader Pelosi announced that Attorney General Eric Holder would be stepping down from his position. close
