Biden calls for end to filibuster to pass voting rights legislation

Several notable voting rights advocacy groups skipped the speech as a means to express frustration with the Biden Administration for failing to prioritize voting rights in his first year in office and for coming to Atlanta with bold words but without a firm plan.
