VICTORY: NAACP and DOJ win against voter suppression in Ohio
In July, the Department of Justice backed the NAACP’s legal challenge to the reduction of early voting days and the elimination of “Golden Week,” an early voting week in Ohio.

CREDO members were part of the 105,000 who protected and expanded voting rights.
