2020

This grant supports 11 national civil rights organizations (led by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund) as they engage in litigation to protect voting rights leading up to the 2020 election. This funding will enable the coalition to increase its efforts to expand voting access and protect voting rights in a time when some states may force citizens to choose between protecting their health and exercising their right to vote.
