Benjamin Jealous told a Salt Lake City audience on Friday that the nation’s power structure has seen the way blacks, Hispanics and students of all races are voting and it realizes time is running out on its “strategy for power.”
He says attempts to place restrictions on voter registration in Florida are aimed at those outside the power structure, but populists can defeat “organized money” every time if people are organized.
Jealous has made voter rights a hallmark of his five-year administration, which ends next week. He announced earlier this fall that he would leave the position but pledged to remain an active civil rights leader.
