In the days after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential contest, Trump and his associates challenged the vote counts in key battleground states where Black voters made the difference, from Georgia and Michigan to Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

“This indictment is a blow against all those people who would see our votes undermined and see our voices discounted,” said Svante Myrick, president and CEO of People For the American Way.

As the nation watches the historic indictment of former President Donald Trump for his role in trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election, civil rights leaders say the federal government’s case against him is justice for Black voters.
