Tribal Civil Rights Lawyer Ryan Dreveskracht Publishes Indian Voting Rights Article

Ryan Dreveskracht has published an important Indian voting rights law review article, "Enfranchising Native Americans After Shelby County v. Holder: Congress's Duty to Act," in the National Lawyers Guild Review.

Ryan argues that Section 5 of the federal Voting Rights Act "is both an appropriate and necessary measure to prevent ongoing voting discrimination targeting Native American citizens, and concludes that "Congress not only has the power to compel preapproval of state voting legislation that is applicable to Indian Country, but it has an obligation to do so."
