Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn (D-SC) and Members of the House and Senate Democratic Caucuses will hold a press event on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. on the House East Front Steps to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act.
