Saturday, April 12th, 2014

This week at the Civil Rights Summit at the LBJ Library in Austin, our chairman and co-founder Ambassador Andrew Young proposed adding a photo to Social Security cards in order to push back on restrictive voter ID laws being enacted in the United States. Former United States Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter endorsed the idea. President Clinton, as quoted in the Washington Post:
