Vanita Gupta, former head of the Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice and president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, joins Daniella and Ed for our second episode of Season Two to discuss Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, the lack of transparency throughout his vetting process, and what listeners can do to say “no” to his confirmation. She also speaks to his threat to the Voting Rights Act, as well as why President Donald Trump’s push to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census would be devastating for many communities across the country. Finally, she shares why her husband won’t let her binge watch “Insecure.”
