#GivingTuesday Snapshot: The League’s Work to Protect Voting Rights

UPDATE: Celebrate #GivingTuesday by making a tax-deductible donation to the League now.

As we’ve been sharing with you over the past few weeks, the League is participating in the #GivingTuesday movement. In honor of #GivingTuesday, we’re taking some time to reflect on the work that League leaders have accomplished in communities across the country; so far, we’ve shared snapshots of the work we’ve done to defend the environment, keep big money out of politics and educate and empower voters.

Now, we’re taking a look at our work to protect voters’ rights.                     

Rooted in the movement that secured the right to vote for women, the League has worked to protect voting rights since we were founded in 1920. Over time, our work has evolved from efforts to gain and foster women’s suffrage to ensuring that all eligible voters – particularly those from traditionally underrepresented or underserved communities – have equal access to the polls. We remain committed to pursuing all avenues to protect the right to vote and decisively close the door to voter discrimination.

Taking place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday celebrates and encourages charitable activities to support nonprofit organizations like the League. #GivingTuesday is propelled by those who believe that individual action can make a difference. On December 3rd, we ask that you think of the League as you reflect on the need to prevent voter suppression efforts and protect the voting rights of all eligible voters. Pledge to support the League’s work and we’ll send you a reminder email with an online donation form on December 3.
