Here in Tucson, Congressman Raul Grijalva convened an event entitled Keeping The Promise, A Community Panel on the Voting Rights Act at the Tucson YWCA. Speakers discussed the promise it continues to hold for countless Americans, and the ongoing efforts to undermine that promise 50 years after it became law. Speakers include Congressman Grijalva, followed by former Ombudsman for Pima County on Aging Stewart Grabel, and Attorney Vince Rabago.
