The CEO is proactive in the laws governing redistricting policies. They see redistricting sections to help a candidate win, whether minority or a majority member, as immoral. They have assembled resources to aid those interested in monitoring the process, and has a list of organisations that specialize in these issues.
They also take an active stance in concern to the voting rights of rehabilitated felons. They believe the right to vote should be reinstated after the fulfillment of the sentence, under the condition they go through a process of review. Clegg believes that ex-felons' voting rights should not be restored automatically, but rather on a case-by-case basis.
The Center also focuses on other issues related to race and ethnicity. Some recent issues that have come to light include the continual usage of desegregation policies that are 50 years old and hinder school effectiveness, usage of disparate impact laws that damage neutral policies and practices, and the issue of reparations for those that have been discriminated against.
