As usual when right-wing politicians want to block a strongly Democratic voting bloc from exercising their right to vote, Republicans in New Hampshire and elsewhere are trotting out the tired excuse of preventing fraud to support new bills that will curtail the ability of students, African-Americans, and other core Democratic groups from voting. Just as the Republicans in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, and elsewhere are using the excuse of balancing budgets to attack the power of unions that support their Democratic opponents, these Republicans are using the same tactics that anti-(small-d) democratic forces around the world use to ensure their continuation in power. Get in power, and then make sure that only your supporters show up to vote the next time around. Unions are key groups in organizing and speaking on behalf of Democratic politicians, and the votes of young people and African-Americans were critical to Democratic success in 2008. The Daily Show has done it’s usual job of actually forcing conservatives to hear themselves talk out of both sides of their mouths on this issue, taking a brave stand for the rights of Wall Street bankers while bemoaning the avarice of public-sector union workers. Progressives need to recognize the values at the core of these movements, and force conservatives to publicly justify these anti-democratic positions on grounds that actually have a basis in reality.

New @HarvardCRCL post about Trump adding an immigration question to #2020Census. Trump's legal arguments and rationales are invalid. This is an effort to suppress the self-determination of black&brown communities & keep his white majority. @votolatino

Dope article by @DemisseSelassie on @HarvardCRCL "
@NipseyHussle was, as many now have understood, 'buying back his hood' – prudently redistributing wealth through job creation before speculative and irresponsibly profit-driven outsiders could arrive. #NipseyHussle https://t.co/cU0pok6xsF
The issues that most affect our brown communities deserve to be acknowledged on all platforms. Thanks for using yours @DemisseSelassie to share the reality of gentrification and the power of reinvesting in our brown communities. Check out the full piece on @HarvardCRCL ✨✨✨ https://t.co/pJJlwqiyCy

Agreed. Also reminds me of when @HarvardCRCL published this piece by Thomas C. O'Bryant on his experiences litigating pro se while incarcerated: https://t.co/4tUGWS8Kdx https://t.co/PhudU2czf2
So proud of my former student Nate Reisinger, whom I had the privilege of teaching during his 1L year at Carolina, for having his Note published in @HarvardCRCL. Congress enacted many of Nate’s specific recommendations weeks after the issue went to print. https://t.co/1E7Xte3CrA
