California Will Defend Right to Vote That Is the Heart of Our Democracy

Statement of Laphonza Butler, SEIU California President:

“Allegations of widespread voter fraud are not just ‘alternative facts,’ they are a calculated and sinister attempt at voter suppression that takes a page from this nation’s bleak history of segregation. It’s no coincidence that Trump’s focus is on California, the state leading the resistance to his divisive and destructive agenda. Trump’s ‘investigation’ threat follows his nomination of an enemy of the Voting Rights Act to Attorney General, making clear this president’s priorities are at odds with California’s historic commitment to advancing civil rights. Silencing the voices of millions of Americans is a threat to our democracy, one that must be- and will be – defeated.”
