An attack on America, the product of an authoritarian movement | The GroundTruth Project

Employing violence, the mob of Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol may have disrupted the peaceful transition of power, a hallmark of American democracy for centuries, but they failed to overthrow the system, writes GroundTruth co-founder Kevin Grant.https://thegroundtruthproject.org/an-attack-on-america-the-product-of-an-authoritarian-movement/

WASHINGTON — Once they got inside, they were everywhere. A mob carrying bats, knives, chemical spray and handcuffs stormed the U.S. Capitol building Wednesday, interrupting the peaceful transition of power for the first time since the precedent was set when President John Adams yielded to Presiden...

Story by GroundTruth Preserving Democracy and Voting Rights Fellow Iliana Hagenah.

A new Tennessee law could strip away Black Lives Matter protesters' voting rights indefinitely.

Tennessee is one of 11 states that doesn't automatically restore voting rights for people even after they serve felony time. Protesters demanding the removal of Ku Klux Klan statue in the state capitol now face class E felony charges.
