South Georgia N.A.A.C.P. leaders gathered in front of the Dougherty County Courthouse to raise awareness of a Supreme Court Case challenging one section of the Voting Rights Act.
The group wants Americans to know about Shelby County, Alabama versus Holder, a case the Supreme Court heard today.
It challenges the requirement that any voting law change in jurisdictions with a history of prejudice must be approved by the Justice Department.
Critics say we've moved passed the voting discrimination common decades ago, but N.A.A.C.P. leaders say the law is still needed.
"A candidate, if he or she feels they have been discriminated against will have to file a lawsuit after the election," said Terrell County N.A.A.C.P. President Reverend Ezekiel Holley. "So we want to keep it intact. I think it's fair to all people."
Section Five of the Voting Rights Act was re authorized in 2006.
The NAACP says it's still needed to prevent voter suppression.
