Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stood for protecting voting rights Monday afternoon at a speech in San Francisco, slamming the Supreme Court for the “damage” it caused at a local level due to its landmark decision on the Voting Rights Act.

“By invalidating pre-clearance, the Supreme Court has shifted the burden back onto citizens alleging discrimination,” Clinton said in a speech to the American Bar Association which was honoring her, according to NBC Bay Area News.

According to NBC, Clinton denounced what she called a “phantom epidemic of voter ID fraud” saying that the damage bought on by the court’s decision could affect citizens at a very local level.

“Throughout our history we have found too many ways to exclude people from their ownership of the law,” Clinton added, according to Talking Points Memo.
