Get involved! There are many ways to have your voice heard by elected officials and policy makers. Take Action on League priorities today.

 

It's Time to Restore the Vote

Tuesday, June 25, marks six years since the U.S. Supreme Court’s Shelby County v. Holder decision which overturned an essential provision of the VRA which has led to countless attacks on the voting rights of Americans. 

Over the past six years since Shelby County v. Holder, states and localities have used every tool available to make voting harder. States have worked to roll back hours for early voting, purge voter rolls of qualified voters, and even pass strict voter photo ID bills that make it harder for people to register to vote.  

But Congress can act today by moving the Voting Rights Advancement Act (H.R. 4 / S. 561)!  

Contact your members of Congress and tell them that our democracy needs a fully restored Voting Rights Act today.

 

Make Sure Everyone is Counted in the 2020 Census

April 1, 2020, marks the kickoff of the 2020 Census. This process of counting will ensure that the political power, health, and safety of every community is maintained or enhanced in the upcoming decade. But communities that don’t get fully counted in 2020 will miss out for the next ten years. NOW is the time to get involved.

The Census counts. So do you.

Pledge to be counted and to educate your community about the importance of the 2020 Census.

 

Tell Congress to Honor the 19th Amendment

After Congress passed the 19th Amendment in 1919, but before it was ratified in August of 1920, the same suffragists, who had fought for nearly a century to gain the right to vote for women, formed the League of Women Voters. 2020 is not only the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, it is also the 100th anniversary of the League of Women Voters. For that reason, the League has a keen interest in seeing the 19th Amendment honored with a coin, featuring women who have been influencers in our great country.

Please ask your Representative to cosponsor and support H.R. 1923, the Women’s History and Nineteenth Amendment Centennial Quarter Dollar Coin Program Act.

 

Tell Congress to Pass Sensible Gun Laws

It’s time to stop the violence. Legislation with common sense solutions to prevent gun violence will protect our children, our citizens and help restore our public confidence. 

Tell Congress to move forward with common sense gun legislation.

 

Stop Voter Suppression

Across the country, there has been a concerted effort in many states to stop some voters from voting, or to make it much harder for them to participate. Legislators and election officials have purged existing voters from the rolls, made cuts to early voting, reduced polling places, put in place strict voter photo ID laws and levied onerous voter registration restrictions.

Stand with the League in our fight to ensure our elections are always free, fair, and accessible.
