Leah C. Aden serves as Senior Counsel at the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF). In that capacity, Leah uses litigation, legislative, policy, and public education strategies to ensure that Black and other people of color have equal access to the political process. Leah was a member of LDF’s litigation team in Shelby County, Alabama v. Holder, a high-profile case in which, in a devastating opinion, the Supreme Court of the United States struck as unconstitutional Section 5, the heart of the Voting Rights Act.
