National Urban League President Marc Morial Urges Louisianans to Vote “Yes” to Change Discriminatory Jury Law
NEW ORLEANS – National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial and Judy Reese Morse, President and CEO of the Urban League of Louisiana today denounce Louisiana’s unjust and discriminatory jury law and urge Louisianans to vote yes on the upcoming ballot question to bring the state in line with most of the rest of the country.
“The law was a blatantly racist attempt to deny Black citizens a voice in the justice system and 120 years later it is no less discriminatory,” Morial said. “It a blight on this great state, and it’s time to renounce everything it represents.”
