President Joe Biden delivers remarks on protecting the constitutional right to vote at National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In a speech the White House said Biden himself wanted to deliver, the president will make “the moral case” for why denying the right to vote is a form of suppression and silencing American voices, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.
Biden also will emphasize his commitment to using every tool at his disposal to protect Americans against voter suppression laws and stress the need to work with civil rights organizations to build a voter education system to overcome “the worst challenge to our democracy since the Civil War,” Psaki said.
