Ep 001 | Intro to RTB + So, We're Purging Votes Now? (Corrected)

In this introductory episode of Raising the Bar with Iman, I discuss a case from the Supreme Court's latest term.  In Husted v. A Philip Randolph, the Court ruled the state of Ohio's practice of purging voters from its rolls after failing to vote didn't violate the National Voter Registration Act.  I discuss how this flawed opinion ignores the history of voter suppression in this country, and why we should care that this took place in Ohio.  Finally, we discuss how we can raise the bar to try to prevent this from happening in other states!
