“Our members are fanning out across the Capitol to tell their elected representatives that it is well past time to right this wrong. We need them to pass the Voting Rights Advancement Act (VRAA),” President MacNamara said.
Hundreds of League members from around the country will be lobbying their U.S. Senators and Representatives on Capitol Hill to advocate for the Voting Rights Advancement Act (VRAA).
The Effective Community Engagement award will reward innovative democracy-building programs that prioritized successful recruitment and engagement of strategic partners and/or new volunteers, particularly those focused on better serving key underrepresented groups such as young voters and new citizens. Anyone can vote and the polls will close on May 31.
The League held its 51st biennial national convention this week, in which League members from around the country discussed important public policy issues and celebrated the organization’s accomplishments on voting rights, campaign finance reform and the environment and more.
