Democracy & Justice: Collected Writings, 2008

  • Brennan Center for Justice
Publicado: Enero 1, 2009

2008 was a remarkable year for our democracy, with an explosion of civic engagement and participation. It is a time of thrilling hope and sobering challenges.

This volume offers a sample of the Brennan Center’s work on all fronts—in Congress, in federal and state courtrooms, as well as in the court of public opinion. Our work protected the voting rights of hundreds of thousands of citizens in Colorado, Florida, Ohio, and across the country. We won key court victories, from the Supreme Court down, in cases on habeas corpus, campaign finance reform, and voting rights. Our reports garnered wide media attention and respect. The Boston Globe called us “indispensible,” and Time magazine published a cover story based on our presentation on voting. Never before have we had such impact—and now we are poised to do even more.
