How one plaintiff has been our hero in the voter suppression wars

Source: Ruthelle Frank, ACLU Plaintiff, Friend, and Voting Rights Champion, Passes Away at 89.

Ruthelle Frank had all the qualifications to be a heroic plaintiff.

She was righteously aggrieved and did something about it.

She persisted, did not get discouraged by setbacks.

She found a great legal team.

She had patience, because she knew she was right.

This portrait by the ACLU (her great legal team) is both a portrait of a remarkable woman–a hero for every voter–and of a civil rights lawsuit.

Ruthelle Frank is a model for all righteous plaintiffs.
