Action Needed: Demand That Your Senators Protect Our Vote
The right to vote is under siege, with extremist state legislatures passing dozens of laws to try to keep people from voting. On Tuesday this week, the U.S. House of Representatives introduced H.R. 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which would restore key aspects of the Voting Rights Act that were struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2013.
“The 2022 midterm elections will be here before we know it,” said Richard Fiesta, the Executive Director of the Alliance. “There is so much at stake and we need the House and Senate to protect the right to vote.”
You can help by taking a few minutes to call your senators and urge them to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Dial 855-930-3131 to be connected, and tell them:
- Our Democracy depends on them
- The Senate MUST pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act so everyone’s voice is heard.
