This is the June 3, 2020 hearing on "Protecting the Right to Vote During the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Pandemic," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties. From the opening statement of Steve Cohen: "The issue that we are here to discuss, protecting the right to vote during the COVID-19 pandemic, is intrinsically tied to the protests occurring across this Nation. Police violence against Black Americans and suppressing the right to vote are two sides of the same coin. The coin of systemic racism has plagued our country since before its founding in 1619 where African Americans were first brought to this country as slaves. Think about it, 1619. That was 250 years before we became a Nation, we had slavery." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jocelyn Benson, Stacey Y. Abrams, J. Christian Adams, Myrna Perez, Tom Fitton, Dale Ho, Barbara Arnwine, and Michelle Bishop.
