Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

Supreme Court Upholds Arizona Voter Suppression Law in Latest Blow to Voting Rights Act

HeadlineJul 02, 2021

The U.S. Supreme Court has gutted what’s left of the Voting Rights Act by upholding two racially discriminatory voter laws in Arizona. Thursday’s 6-3 ruling by the court’s conservative majority will make it harder to challenge new voter suppression laws being pushed by Republican state lawmakers across the country. In her dissent, Elena Kagan wrote, “What is tragic here is that the Court has yet again rewritten — in order to weaken — a statute that stands as a monument to America’s greatness, and protects against its basest impulses. What is tragic is that the court has damaged a statute designed to bring about 'the end of discrimination in voting.'”
