Brennan Center Lecture—Journalist Adam Cohen on Injustice at the Supreme Court

In recent years, the Supreme Court has empowered moneyed interests to wield disproportionate influence in elections, gutted the Voting Rights Act, and upheld President Trump’s Muslim ban. These decisions fit a troubling, decades-long pattern, argues journalist Adam Cohen. His new survey of high court rulings, Supreme Inequality: The Supreme Court’s Fifty-Year Battle for a More Unjust America, finds that since the Nixon era, the Court has done little to protect the rights of the poor and disadvantaged.

Adam Cohen, Former member of the New York Times editorial board; former senior writer, Time magazine; author of Supreme Inequality: The Supreme Court’s Fifty-Year Battle for a More Unjust America
