U.S. Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH), chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, is led away by a member of the U.S. Capitol Police during a protest at Hart Senate Office Building on July 15, 2021, on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The activists participated in a civil disobedience in response to “numerous voter restriction laws being passed in states across the country, as well as Senate Republicans’ refusal to engage meaningfully in drafting federal legislation to ensure that every American has equal access and opportunity to vote.” (Alex Wong/Getty Images)
