Under Siege: The Plot to Destroy Democracy (2022 State of Black America)

Apr 13, 2022
  • Description

Factions of state and federal lawmakers, working in concert with shady political operatives and violent extremists, are dangerously close to dismantling American democracy and establishing autocratic rule.

The National Urban League's 2022 State of Black America report, "Under Siege: The Plot to Destroy Democracy," outlines the conspiracy and the urgent case for a national mobilization to protect and defend our most sacred constitutional right.

Using data and analysis from research partner, The Brennan Center for Justice, this year's edition of The State of Black America exposes the four main tactics employed in the plot: gerrymandering, voter suppression, misinformation, and intimidation.
