Integral to that conversation is the rule of law and the pursuit of justice. For this installment of the American Voter Project series, the <strong>Eric H. Holder Jr. Initiative</strong>&nbsp;<strong>for Civil and Political Rights</strong> invites you to join us for a panel discussion on the road ahead for the Department of Justice under the new administration.</p> <p><strong>Panelists&nbsp;&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>Eric H.
